The major purpose of the study was to investigate whether intermediate grade students who do unsatisfactory written assignments can learn to be more successful in written work as a result of a program which teaches the skills of written expression. A secondary purpose of the study was to determine whether teachers with varied backgrounds could successfully use the pre recorded program with a minimum of in-service training.
