Abstract

In this article, we compare the Common Core State Standards in Writing to the Hayes cognitive model of writing, adapted to describe the performance of young and developing writers. Based on the comparison, we propose the inclusion of standards for motivation, goal setting, writing strategies, and attention by writers to the text they have just written. In addition, we propose that support materials for educators should include definitions of writing processes, ideas about how to support motivation, explanation of the role of writing schema, and a grade-by-grade list of useful technology skills.
