  3. 3. Why improve writing in EFL? Evidence indicates that Ss are not getting good results in the writing skill- hence INSPECCIÓN de INGLÉS suggested this topic was critical this year It is a requirement in all EFL syllabi It is an academic and social need It is a market labor need It is an integral part of a whole education
  4. 4. A bit of history: The Rise of Literacy- Domination of history over myth The distinction between the natural and the supernatural Ability to store and access greater amounts of knowledge The creation of abstract logical deduction The ability to analyze language itself as an object The awareness of the individual as distinct from the group and consequently the need for private introspection The rise of critical skepticism towards previously reified knowledge and beliefs. The rise of democratic institutions- Greek city statesAdapted from Goody and Watt (in Grabe and Kaplan 1996 )

  16. 16. P 38 Grabe and KaplanSome questions to reflect upon: What is a text? How may texts be examined as product? How may texts be analyzed as process? How may product and process be viewed as reflecting an Interactive model? How do process and product issues embed themselves within a coherent interpretation of wider social contexts for writing? What types of texts do we want learners to produce? What do these issues suggest for writing instruction in the classroom?
  17. 17. Ethnographic Research on elementaryschool writingby Calkins, Graves and others writing should be seen as a process of discovery---- problem solving drawing and talking are means for pre-writing a rehearsal internalize their conversations to the point where they do not simply write down what they say move from writing for themselves to writing for others learn to spend time planning pre-writing and rehearsing activities serious revision about themselves by conferencing with teachers about their writing students learn that they need to have control over their writing since schools do not create student motivation and involvement teachers need to generate a commitment to writing – involved and motivated to write and teachers need to practice writing in class and to share their writing with children- teachers need to have control over their classrooms and become active teacher/ researchers with respect to their own practice. Sentence combining does lead to writing improvement to some extent --- Beaugrande 1984 Hillocks 1986
