International Journal of English Studies, v1 n2 p153-74 2001
Examines whether targeting instruction to students' weak points has an effect on their writing quality. Upper intermediate students in an English for academic purposes course were asked to write a composition before and after the instructional treatment. Comparison of results from the two tasks shows a significant increase in scores on both language-related traits and discourse-related traits. (Author/VWL)
