This article examines two myths about writing: good writing cannot be taught, and writing develops naturally. For each myth, we develop an alternate proposition and recommend methods for achieving it with students who find writing difficult. The proposed instructional procedures focus specifically on the development of knowledge, skill, will, and self-regulation in writing.
