  34. 34. Model Paragraph My perfect sl hchool would be much like the one I went to; however, several improvements could be made. There could be a better pupilteacher relationship, especially between older teachers and pupils. Pupils should be once again given some kind of incentives to do well both at academic and sports activities. Discipline would be strict but punishment would only be administered in severe cases. School would still be compulsory. HANADI MIRZA 35
  35. 35. Problems with Writing Tasks  Poor Writing Topics (summer vacations)  NO Schemata for Paragraph or Essay - ID of Paragraph = Topic Sentence - ID of Essay = Thesis Statement HANADI MIRZA 36
  36. 36. Writing Topics * Students usually wait for the summer vacations to rest and have fun. Some go to the beach. Others spend their time in the mountains or even travel abroad.

  37. 37. Other Problems with Writing  Grammar NOT integrated IN Writing (Habits in the present  Simple present)  Poor explanation of Spelling rules in Elem (hid – hide / cut – cute / mad – made)  Memorizing words visually (Dictation= NO Use of Listening to Write) * Memorizing sentences/paragraphs for (official) exams  destroy writing process HANADI MIRZA 38
