This paper analyses the strengths and weaknesses of product, process, and genre approaches to writing in terms of their view of writing and how they see the development of writing. It argues that the three approaches are complementary, and identifies an approach which is informed by each of them The process genre writing approach; an alternative option for the modern classroom academic purposes (EAP) teaching in China: critical thinking skills and teaching approaches to writing. Their relevance to our study will be established. Then, we will introduce our two-year study exploring a process-genre approach to teaching academic writing skills to students in the doctoral EAP program at a top-tier Chinese university the process-genre approach to teaching writing was introduced and implemented. Thirty (30) university foundation year (Class XII age 17-18 Years) students and two English Language Teachers helped the researcher to carry out this study. It was also ensured that teachers and students were well introduced and envisioned th
To Badger and White (2000) this genre based approach is an integration of the product and process approaches: Writing involves knowledge about language (as in the product and genre approaches); knowledge of the content in which writing happens and especially the purpose for the 4 writing (as in genre approaches), and skills in using language. Approaches such as the genre approach using the teaching and learning cycle, or the more process-oriented approach of the writing workshop, incorporate teaching about the writing process as students compose texts. As noted by Christie (2016, n.p.) A process genre approach to teaching writing 159 . attempting to explain the mental processes that underlie the exercise of the skill. For example, teachers might explain why they chose to include certain information about a house and leave out other information. Figure 2 illustrates the possible input in the process genre Components of Writing This manual provides guidance on how schools may approach the teaching of a number of writing genres. While the focus is on seven genres, this list is not exhaustive. Appropriate assessment tools are suggested, along with a variety of practical activities
As previously stated, Badger a nd White (2000) claim that the genre approach is an extension of the product approach, thereby they propose a combination of process and genre approach to the teaching of writing . Genres are generic categories of written forms. The term is commonly used in literary circle to refer to the major genres of poetry, prose and drama The results show that: (1) Process-Genre Approach is more effective than Product Approach in teaching writing; (2) the students who have high self-esteem have better writing skill than those who have low self-esteem; and (3) there is an interaction between teaching approaches and the students' self-esteem in teaching writing dualism. Instead, genre approaches see ways of writing as purposeful, socially situated responses to particular contexts and communities. In this paper, I discuss the importance of genre approaches to teaching L2 writing and how they complement process views by emphasising the role of language in written communication. # 2002 Elsevier Science Inc It is expected that students will enhance their writing skills by experiencing the whole writing process as well as realizing social functions by means of the process genre approach. Dudley-Evans (1998: 118) proposes a teaching approach that combines the strength of the product approach, the process approach and the genre approach
A Process Genre Model for Teaching Writing. Guo Yan. Writing instructors must deal with many issues, such as how to determine the importance of correct spelling and punctuation in early drafts, how to treat the different steps in the composition process, and how to analyze a text for its context and purpose Effective writing instruction entails the adoption of a synthesized teaching approach informed by product, process, and genre perspectives of writing (Badger & White, 2000). Specifically, teachers guide students to engage in brainstorming, multiple drafting, and final editing with scaffolding on content, language, and rhetorical skills of. The Genre approach The process approach focuses on the writer, the creativity and individualism of writing, and the process of writing as a whole, starting from the generation of ideas through to the edition of work. Genre approaches, on the other hand, focus more on the reader, and on the convention Genre-based approaches, where teaching and learning focuses on the understanding and production of selected genres of texts, have been identified by Rodgers (2001) as a major trend in English language teaching (ELT) in the new millennium. Genre-based approaches emphasize that this higher order must be attended to for effective language use. . References: 1. Atkinson, D.

An ELT Glossary : Product, process and genre approaches to writing The product approach to writing is based on the idea that learning to write involves understanding the grammar and lexis of the language and then reproducing those features accurately. it was used in the 1960s and 70s until the process approach became more popular Various approaches to the teaching of academic writing have been introduced, of which the most significant are the intellectual/rhetorical approach and the social/genre approach The genre approach involves teaching grammar and text form explicitly again, concentrating on content, structure and sequence in the process of becoming literate. This new approach avoids the formalisation of traditional grammar, by linking different text forms to the different social purposes of texts The Teaching Model of the Approach The process genre approach was first put forward by Badger and White (2000) in University of Stirling, Britain. See the following figure of this teaching model: Figure 1. A process genre model of teaching writing (Badger & White, 2000). 49 Using the teaching and learning cycle with EAL/D learners. The teaching and learning cycle allows EAL/D students the time and opportunities for multiple exposures to new language, content and skills over time. The Writing Workshop. A simple and predictable learning environment where writing is a process and students can become independent writers
Drawing on Halliday's (1994) Systemic Functional Linguistics, a genre-based approach to teaching L2 writing focuses on the conventions of a particular text type and attempts to help students understand why they are writing a text (purpose), who they are writing for (audience), and how to write a text (organization) (Widodo 2006) 3.3 Process genre approach to teaching writing Considering the limitations of both disciplines, the process genre approach characterizes not only the learner s creative thinking and the act of how writers form a text, but also the knowledge of linguistic features as well as specific discourse community where a particular genre performs The writing process involves teaching students to write in a variety of genres, encouraging creativity, and incorporating writing conventions. This process can be used in all areas of the curriculum and provides an excellent way to connect instruction with state writing standards. The following are ways to implement each step of the writing.
the genre approach, with its over-emphasis on form in writing. As a result, the written text to be produced in this approach is not preconceived. Meanwhile, using media in teaching writing is very crucial. There are many media that can be used in teaching writing. One of them is audio visual media.

The effect of the genre based approach to teaching writing on the EFL Al-azhr secondary students' writing skills and their attitudes towards writing. Journal of Education and Practice, 4(1), 45-60, 1-20 considering alternative teaching approaches, it is important to note teachers' perceptions and concepts regarding their teaching practices. This paper reports on a study into how writing teachers perceive their current approaches and the consequences of implementing a genre-based approach in one writing classroom Through the process genre approach, teachers will provide opportunities for learners to identify the structure and elements of a specified genre; its field, tenor and mode. And as learners are involved in the writing process, with sufficient support, they will be able to develop their own creativity in constructing their text The Process Approach to Writing This is a presentation I prepared for our class in the Teaching of Composition. It is about the Process Approach to Writing, its Theoretical Underpinnings, etc. The presentation was given last April 21, 2010
many common-used approaches to teach writing, there are two approaches which are commonly used by teachers; they are product approach and process approach. To sum up, this research is limited to teaching recount text by process approach and product approach viewed from the students' creativity The genre process approach is a quite demanding approach, in which a two-way communicational learning environment is critical. The teacher must use heuristic teaching style. Only through deductive teaching can students acquire the ability to evaluate and analyze the reading material as well as the ability to read for general information. 2 The Process Genre Approach . A process genre approach starts with the situation which gives rise to a particular genre of writing. The students then produce some writing in line with their own needs supported by the teacher, their peers and sample texts The two approaches are not necessarily incompatible. I believe that process writing, i.e. re-drafting, collaboration, can be integrated with the practice of studying written models in the classroom. What I take from the process approach is the collaborative work, the discussion which is so important in generating and organising ideas
. In process writing, the teacher moves away from being someone who sets students a writing topic and receives the finished product for correction without any intervention in the writing process itself Studies on EFL writing in the literature have shed light on process or genre approach of teaching writing to college or secondary EFL learners (Bhatia, 1999; Cheng, 2006; Chen & Su, 2012; Guo, 2005; Hyland, 2003, 2007; Swales, 1990). To date, scarce related works have centered on improv-ing the EFL writing of the Chinese visiting scholars, who have a strong motivation to publish articles in.
conventions and this means that ability to write in one genre does not mean proficiency in another. All these factors affect student motivation, which without a doubt, plays an important role in their success. 5 Approaches to Teaching Writing 5.1 The Process Approach White and Arndt identify 6 non-linear procedures or processes when writing A PROCESS-GENRE APPROACH TO TEACHING SECOND LANGAGE WRITING: THEORETICAL PERSPECTIVE AND IMPLEMENTATION IN A THAI UNIVERSITY SETTING by Wisut Jarunthawatchai The study investigates the effects of implementing a process-genre approach in teaching L2 writing to Thai students at the university level in terms of the quality of written texts The genre-based teaching approach is a new method for English teaching in China. In this paper, the related researches of genre-based teaching approach in the past two decades are reviewed from the following aspects: basic concepts of genre, genre analysis and genre-based teaching approach, research stages, research angles, problems and suggestions The genre approach involves the direct teaching of a range of genres through a cycle that includes modelling, joint construction and independent construction. (Green and Campbell 2003, 209). This approach to teaching writing stemmed from a specific c..
Although the process writing has various advantages, it originated from L1 (English as a first language), which may not be wholly suitable to in an EFL (English as a foreign language) context. Hence, the adaptability and simplification of the original Process Approach are perceived to be significant process of writing (Tribble 1996:118). To elaborate, the process approach is unlike traditional writing approaches that present a writing model and suggest repetition; in the process approach, teaching occurs during the writing process, not only before and after, like traditional approaches (ibid) Genre-based pedagogy in Australia has a similar history and was a reaction to whole language and process writing, which were dominant in the teaching of writing in Australian schools at the time. In ESP genre work, genre refers to a class of communicative events, such as academic essays, research articles, theses and dissertations As with most teaching and learning techniques, it is important to stress consistency in the writing process. Establishing a structured approach that is used for every assigned paper is one way to create independent writers and ensure generalization of writing skills. A typical writing process consists of steps. Essentially, it is a method used. Product Writing is an approach to teaching writing that focuses on students' final production, that is, the text they are asked to produce. There is enhanced importance in the end product and this affects the way a product writing lesson is staged. In the next section, we describe the stages of a product writing lesson. We also made available an activity that can be adapted to your lessons.
The approaches to teaching language in these [CAPS] documents are text-based, communicative, integrated and process orientated. The text-based approach and the communicative approach are both dependent on the continuous use and production of texts.. A text-based approach teaches learners to become competent, confident and critical readers, writers, viewers, and designers of texts using Process Genre Approach in teaching writing narrative text. Teacher's interview reveals that the benefits of using process genre approach in teaching writing narrative text were the students can write a text step by step and the students not only can write a text but they can learn about a genre of text in detail Genre-based approach is one of the approaches in teaching writing. This is an approach in teaching and learning English especially in the production of the text ( it can be written or spoken) based on the genres of the text given.

The genre approach to literacy teaching represents a fundamentally new educational paradigm. The Powers of Literacy introduces this original theory and practice for the teaching of literacy, with.. The approach we advocate here is decidedly different than simply taking students through one lap of writing in a given genre, one genre at a time. We have found that this spiral approach to teaching writing is much more likely to lead our students to mastery. And there is an added bonus: It also leads our students to rediscover the joys of writing
Hence, whether a teacher chooses to follow a form based, creative based, process based, or genre based approach, they will find the modelled, guided, and independent writing cycle an invaluable, and highly practical method for the systematic implementation of their chosen approach ABSTRACT: The objective of this study was to find out whether or not there issignificant difference on students' writing achievement taught by using Process Genre Approach and teacher's strategy at the eighth grade students of SMPN 22 Palembang.The population of this study consisted of 277 eighth grade students of SMPN 22Palembang in Academic Year of 2014/2015
Writing knowledge: Writing knowledge includes an understanding of discourse and genre — for example, understanding that a narrative is organized differently than an informational text. Another example of writing knowledge includes writing for an audience, that is, the writer's understanding of the need to convey meaning clearly and. The genre approach bears more to a passing resemblance to the product approach in that a model text is analysed and perhaps some controlled writing is carried out focusing on aspects of vocabulary or syntax. This is followed by some guided writing before a final free writing stage. Both approaches view imitation as important in learning The goal of the TLC is to support students' autonomous writing skills in a specific genre, or text type, within a particular discipline (such as a science explanation, historical argument, or literary story). This approach is quite different from many other approaches to writing instruction and support that provide more generi
A Process Genre Approach to Writing Transactional Letters By James Frith - 1 Introduction. It is through the mastery of writing that the individual comes to be fully effective in intellectual organisation, not only in the management of everyday affairs, but also in the expression of ideas and arguments Teaching Writing as Process. Process vs. Product. For the purpose of this particular discussion, it's perhaps useful to make a distinction between writing-as-process and writing-as-product. While these distinctions may not hold up under deep scrutiny,. approaches as the traditional product oriented approach, the process oriented approach and the genre oriented approach to teaching and learning of writing. 2. CRITIQUE OF THE THREE WRITING APPROACHES Tribble (1996) claims that the three approaches to writing are the subject of contention among If you're teaching how-to writing, find books about making crafts, cooking, or other DIY topics. If you're teaching report writing, look at nonfiction books. Read these books (or parts of them) to your students. Talk as a class about the special features you notice Indeed, many eclectic approaches exist and more recently there has been more emphasis, particularly in language courses with tight objectives such as English for Academic Purposes, on a genre approach to writing which concentrates efforts on teaching and learning the linguistic features of a restricted range of genres
The aim of this paper is (1) to introduce an SFL-genre-based approach to teaching methodology that reckons with the changes in EFL learners' awareness of target genre in particular learning contexts, and (2) to explore the idea that learning how to write consists of more than creating a cognitive network in terms of linguistic knowledge as it is processed by learners' brains The main approaches to the analysis of genres in these areas are the ESP perspective, the work of the Sydney school, and the composition studies view of genre in what is sometimes called the new rhetoric. There are a number of ways in which each of these perspectives on genre overlap and ways in which they are different from each other Writing is an invisible task. Deconstructing mentor texts with ELs teaches the way language is used in different genres. Teaching students to think metacognitively about the writing process helps them transfer writing skills to other contexts • Purpose, genre and voice • Writing process PRIMARY LANGUAGE CURRICULUM • Response and author's intent ENGLISH Because writers are revising as they write, researchers recommend a process approach to the teaching of writing. This approach views writing as a set of behaviours which can be taught, learned, discussed and developed. It. Our goal is to combine genre, process and academic literacy approaches in such a way that conscious 'learning' of genres through explicit mediation of form, and the development of a shared metalanguage, is placed alongside 'acquisition'iii - a more unconscious process of using writing to clarify one's own position in an argument
the writing process, the role of self-efficacy in writing and genre theory. The second section explores the implications of the models for writing pedagogy and explores research on effective evidence-based practices for implementing a process-based approach to writing in the senior classes of primary school Process-genre based approach is the combination of two approaches, process approach and genre-based approach. According to process approach, writing activities are divided into four steps: planning, drafting, editing (reflecting and revising) and final version (Harmer, 2004:4). Planning is the step in which th Furthermore, genres are constantly undergoing changes. Therefore, she presents an approach for destabilizing the students' genre knowledge in order to make their understanding of the genres more sophisticated. This approach like many in the book seeks to avoid simple cookie cutter approaches to teaching reading and writing Teaching writing as a process challenges traditional, authoritative models of teaching, in which professors (who know everything) talk at students (who know very little). Instead, teaching writing as a process empowers students by getting them to talk with a tutor about every step of the writing process Steps in the Writing Process. Before we get into how workshop runs, let's make sure we get clear on some terms. The writing process, or the steps authors go through when writing, aren't the same. The results demonstrate improvement in students' writing ability, evidenced in the increase in scores obtained at the end of the teaching program. Moreover, the resultsof the questionnaire also show the students' consciousness that the process-genre approach could help improve their writing ability, especially writing application letters
