Electronic outlining as a tool for making writing visible
Computers and Composition Volume 14, Number 3 ISSN 8755-4615 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
The electronic outlining software found in many commercial programs, when projected on the classroom wall, helps us train students in the main activities involved in creating an outline. Freed from paper, the electronic outline allows continuous revision, encourages multiple iterations of the many interdependent activities involved in research, planning, writing, and revision, and serves as a focal point for discussion of the ways in which the group is developing an ongoing consensus, as part of a larger conversation.
