This study explored how groups of 8th graders plan for a collaborative writing activity. Using discourse analysis and content analysis, we analyzed 19 groups' written planning discourse to understand (1) what groups prioritized, and (2) how they take up, assign, and negotiate tasks. This work will be presented at AERA as a roundtable for the Writing and Literacies Special Interest Group.
