Lulu Learns to Write is a graphic metaphor. Imagine each separate writing skill as a box. Lulu, our young writer, is now faced with a huge number of skills that she has to learn simultaneously. As Lulu grows and learns, she needs less cognitive work space for her foundational skills, allowing more room for higher-level thinking. This is a representation of Cognitive Load Theory: skills that become automatic require less cognitive effort.
