This study examines the Daily Oral Language (DOL) program aimed at helping students learn mechanics of writing through daily editing exercises. This nine-month study sought to determine if DOL improved editing skills and actual writing skills of seventy fourth-grade students. While the results of this study did not statistically demonstrate the effectiveness of the DOL program, there were indications of improvement in children’s writing and editing skills. Recommendations for further investigation are provided.
