The study employed a multiple-probed, cross-subject, single-subject methodology that focused on persuasive-writing outcomes. Writing performance was assessed prior to and after instruction. Instruction was divided into seven stages and was administered in 30-minute sessions during a range of 11 to 13 lessons.
