The teaching process has three stages:
Providing preparatory exercises aimed at helping learners to create a text on their own (e.g. Put the parts of the text in the logical order // Identify thesis statement).
This is the longest and most important stage here: the more exercises that are given the better for learners.
Exercises at pre-writing stage should include:
– check whether learner understand when this/that text is written
– check whether learners understand the structure
– check whether learners understand how they can vary the language
– producing a text
A text does not always mean long genres, they could present invitations, blogs, postcards, etc or even compound sentences at lower levels
– peer reviews// self-reflection
Writing can also be guided and unguided depending on the teacher’s participation.
Learners should go through the following steps of writing a text:
Those steps should be taught and thus might be the object of preparatory exercises.
