What is Written Expression?…

Current research on writing defines written expression as “the complex self-directed process that involves the higher order cognitive skills of idea generation, planning, organizing, translating, and revising ideas into a written product which communicates meaning.”

In today’s classrooms the emphasis on student achievement through written expression is at its highest.

At the Handwriting Collaborative we are dedicated to providing educators with access to the research, and the resources, that are key to improving the writing development of all learners.

With this goal in mind, we gathered together leading researchers in the fields of literacy education, psychology, neuroscience, and more to share the findings of their most recent work at our International Conference on the Science of Written Expression.
This virtual conference, on ALL aspects of the science of writing, is now available for On-Demand viewing.
