The broad question guiding this assignment is, ‘

What are the characteristics of students’/children’s writing?

’You will need to adapt this question to fit with your context and/ or analytical focus. 

Data analysis: You will need to analyze your sample texts, and, if appropriate, compare characteristics across the sample.

We recommend that you take an inductive approach to analysis: this involves a close, iterative examination of your

 writing sample to identify its characteristics.
