Takil, Nazife Burcu
Educational Research and Reviews, v11 n7 p426-436 Apr 2016
This investigation was done to explore the effectiveness of "Ask, write, throw" (AWT) technique in improving the writing skills of B2 level learners of Turkish as a foreign language compared to traditional teaching technique. To this end, 35 learners at similar levels were recruited. There were 18 learners in the AWT (experimental) group and 17 learners in the traditional technique (control) group. The investigation lasted for 8 weeks. Results clearly showed that the AWT technique significantly improved the learners' writing skills compared to traditional techniques and principles. Learners in the AWT group were more successful in vocabulary, punctuation, relevancy in writing, form of constructed sentences and vocabulary error count. These findings demonstrate the effectiveness of "ask, write, throw" (AWT) technique in teaching Turkish as a foreign language compared to the traditional technique.
