Around 50 elementary school teachers, teacher educators, writing researchers and pre-service teacher students participated in a Group Concept Mapping study on what should be taught on teaching writing in elementary school teacher education curricula. Identified priority areas are teaching writing strategies, process instruction, feedback and assessment, general pedagogical knowledge, design skills and motivation. Stakeholders are in agreement on most priority areas, although pre-service teacher students differ in the way they understand some of them. While not doubting the relevance, teacher educators experience integrating teaching writing pedagogies in teacher training curricula as a challenge.
