Teaching the Writing Process as a First and Second Language Revisited: Are They the Same?
Lincoln, Felicia; Ben Idris, Anisa
Journal of International Education Research, v11 n2 p119-124 2015
Research on the second writing process is not recent. Both first and second writing processes have been in the area of argument among scholars. It has been confirmed that both first and second writers nearly all practice similar physical activities pre-writing, during, and post writing stages; however, they still differ in the inner extra thinking activities that non-native writers practice to reduce the transfer of first language rules during the writing processes. Therefore, teachers should provide extensive feedback to ELL students to help them improve their writing skills (Brown, 2007; Dyer, 1996; Ferris, 2002; Hyland, 2003; Krashen, 1982; Silva, 1997).
