Stage development through college writing - Scholarly connection?


Hello integralists,
I’m a PhD student of rhetoric and communication at Iowa State University.

I’m currently putting together a dissertation project where, briefly, I’d like to, first, instrumentalize a way to gauge stages of ego development featured in student writing.

Informed by that, develop writing prompts, activities, assignments, etc., to help our students not only become better writers, but also more developed writers.

Any other integrally informed scholars in linguistics, rhetoric and composition, developmental psych, and so on, would like to exchange ideas on the topic?

Best wishes,
