A product approach This is a traditional approach, in which students are encouraged to mimic a model text, which is usually presented and analysed at an early stage. A model for such an approach is outlined below: Stage 1 Model texts are read, and then features of the genre are highlighted.
For example, if studying a formal letter, students' attention may be drawn to the importance of paragraphing and the language used to make formal requests.
If studying a story, the focus may be on the techniques used to make the story interesting, and students focus on where and how the writer employs these techniques. Stage 2 This consists of controlled practice of the highlighted features, usually in isolation.
So if students are studying a formal letter, they may be asked to practise the language used to make formal requests, practising the 'I would be grateful if you would…' structure. Stage 3 Organisation of ideas. This stage is very important.
Those who favour this approach believe that the organisation of ideas is more important than the ideas themselves and as important as the control of language.
Stage 4 The end result of the learning process. Students choose from a choice of comparable writing tasks. Individually, they use the skills, structures and vocabulary they have been taught to produce the product; to show what they can do as fluent and competent users of the language.
A process approach Process approaches to writing tend to focus more on the varied classroom activities which promote the development of language use: Such an approach can have any number of stages, though a typical sequence of activities could proceed as follows; Stage 1 Generating ideas by brainstorming and discussion.
Students could be discussing qualities needed to do a certain job, or giving reasons as to why people take drugs or gamble. The teacher remains in the background during this phase, only providing language support if required, so as not to inhibit students in the production of ideas.
Students extend ideas into note form, and judge quality and usefulness of ideas. Stage 3 Students organise ideas into a mind map, spidergram, or linear form. This stage helps to make the hierarchical relationship of ideas more immediately obvious, which helps students with the structure of their texts.
Stage 4 Students write the first draft. This is done in class and frequently in pairs or groups. Stage 5 Drafts are exchanged, so that students become the readers of each other's work.
By responding as readers, students develop an awareness of the fact that a writer is producing something to be read by someone else, and thus can improve their own drafts. Stage 6 Drafts are returned and improvements are made based upon peer feedback.
A final draft is written. Stage 8 Students once again exchange and read each other's work and perhaps even write a response or reply.
A summary of the differences Process-driven approaches show some similarities with task-based learning, in that students are given considerable freedom within the task.
They are not curbed by pre-emptive teaching of lexical or grammatical items. However, process approaches do not repudiate all interest in the product, i.When composing a business letter to introduce a new product to a potential client, the letter must be clear, convincing and compelling.
