SRSD has been the subject of extensive study and has proven to be the most effective approach to writing instruction among those studied by academics. A meta-analysis of writing instruction meta-analyses, by Dr. Karen R. Harris and Dr. Steve Graham, demonstrated that SRSD consistently outperforms comparable writing instruction in terms of average test score improvement.
30+ years of research and 100+ international studies
prove that SRSD dramatically boosts effect size in student writing.
