In 2009, the SLW-IS won a small grant from TESOL to support a special project investigating the needs of a wide range of TESOL members regarding teaching writing. As a relatively new IS, we hoped to gain more insight into how we are currently addressing these needs and where we might do more in the future. Our survey was sent to 2,000 TESOL members across Interest Sections, with 456 responses. The results and conclusions of that research were presented at the TESOL 2010 convention and are summarized in the attached documents. Members of the research team are happy to share the full data set with anyone who is interested.
