The Role of Error Correction in the Process-Oriented ESL Composition Classroom.
Bosher, Susan
MinneTESOL Journal, v8 p89-101 1990
A list of guidelines for error correction in the writing process is presented, as well as a specific classroom application of a correction code and error analysis chart. Although developed for Southeast Asian English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) students, the code could be modified and applied to any target population. The procedure for using the code provides students with practice gaining control over the language, within the context of their own writing, as the final stage of the writing process. The practice engages students in a problem-solving approach to error, and makes them responsible for their own learning. A brief review of the literature on composition theory is included. Contains 39 references. (LB)
