Formatted Abstract/Summary
This paper reports on the metacognitive knowledge of students in Years 5 to 9 with developmental disabilities and learning difficulties involved with their teachers in the WriteIdeas Project in Queensland, Australia. The students were assessed using the Student Writing Interview-Revised (van Kraayenoord, Moni & Jobling, 2004) prior to and after an intervention involving tailored instructional support in writing. The comparisons of metacognitive knowledge related to writing of the two groups of students and at pre- and post-assessment revealed both similarities and differences. The results highlight the complex issue of metacognitive knowledge of writing and of using such information to develop responsive instruction in writing for students with developmental disabilities and learning difficulties in inclusive classrooms.
