Proposing Opinion Writing as a Practice of Critical Thinking
Arju, Sayma
Reading Matrix: An International Online Journal, v10 n1 p106-114 Apr 2010
While practicing freehand writing activities in an EFL class, some learners feel uncomfortable because they cannot simplify the subject matter or organize a good beginning. In elementary classes, if the learners are studying something that is related to the in-class task, their work becomes easier. Other than modeling the activity to the learners, if the instructor asks them to write their personal opinion after reading or listening to a piece of literature, then the aforementioned trouble that some of the learners are facing can be solved. I have experience using this method in my classes and have received a satisfactory result. This paper aims to share my experiences and the methodology used to conduct the activity.
