Writing Situation Model

The model below demonstrates how people, relationships, places, ideas, and beliefs influence our writing in complex ways.


The arrows pointing in all directions on the model depict the different connections that exist between readers, writers, and texts. These connections or relationships happen in physical, social, and cultural contexts that shape the way that readers and writers enter into these relationships and understand these connections. Think of it this way: whenever we read or write anything, we do so with other texts we have read and written in mind, with an understanding of how we to relate to others, and with the physical, social, and cultural experiences and events that have shaped the way we think.
