The Analysis of Teachers' Attitudes Toward Students' Writing.
Lim, Constance Chungchai Chun
This investigation is concerned with teachers' attitudes toward activities students engage in before writing, the purpose of students' writing, and their motivation for writing. The findings of the study indicate that classroom discussion seems to be teacher-centered, with very little action taking place among the students; most of the teachers believe that students are able to interpret their own experiences and to create; teachers view writing as both a subject matter and the major medium through which other learning takes place; the majority of teachers initiate students' writing and select the topics for the students; and the kind of response students receive from their teachers is usually judgmental and threatening, resulting n little positive motivation for students to write.
