Give a chance to improve writing skills.

Postby johnrichard » Sat Jun 18, 2011 2:51 pm

From my teaching experiences, i have to find that many students have problems to write down their academic assignments mainly essay writing. What makes it difficult is their unfamiliarity with the essay writing genre. They can get cleared the problem by having experience in the genre, mainly the way referring sample essays. I have posted an article in my blog based on this student issue and i hope will contribute something useful here.

All the best :)

Forgive me for being frank but your post is littered with grammatical mistakes. It may detract from the overall import of your message.

I am not saying this to flame or troll, but to support.

I agree however that using sample essays is a way to get them accustomed to the genre. Reading widely is the most organic method, but for children who grow up in home environments that do not foster a native-speaker standard of English, it can be difficult. In such cases reading a set of good, verifiable high-scoring essays can be more useful in the short term than reading Harry Potter or some work of literature.
