Teaching writing in a changing semiotic land-scape.
Erixon, P.-O.,Nixon, H.
L1 Educational Studies in Language and Literature , 2007,
Abstract: This special issue of L1–Educational Studies in Language and Literature focuses on what it means to teach writing in secondary schools in the age of new media. We approach this topic from the understanding that people worldwide are now operating within a ‘changing semiotic landscape’ (Kress & van Leeuwen, 1996) that is associated with social, economic and technological change. This changing landscape of communication is affecting not only how we read and write, but also is expanding the range of semiotic modes and media with we habitually engage in order to make meaning, communicate and get things done in the world.

Reading an ESL Writer’s Text
Paul Kei Matsuda,Michelle Cox
Studies in Self-Access Learning Journal , 2011,
Abstract: This paper focuses on reading as a central act of communication in the tutorial session. Writing center tutors without extensive experience reading writing by second language writers may have difficulty getting past the many differences in surface-level features, organization, and rhetorical moves. After exploring some of the sources of these differences in writing, the authors present strategies that writing tutors can use to work effectively with second language writers.

Dogus University Journal , 2000,
Abstract: This paper focuses on the role of verbal and written feedback that the students receive in the process of producing an academic research project. It is argued that feedback plays an important role in the improvement of quality of student writing. It is also claimed that students can produce better compositions and become autonomous learners who can reflect the skills they acquire in the process of conducting research and presenting it in the form of an academic research paper in their further studies during their university education.
The Relationship between Self-Esteem and Paragraph Writing of Iranian EFL Learners  [PDF]
Mansoor Fahim, Somaye Khojaste Rad
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2012.31004
Abstract: The present study is an attempt to understand the relationship between self-esteem and paragraph writing of Iranian EFL learners. The study was conducted on both Iranian male and female senior EFL learners studying at Tonekabon and Lahijan Azad Universities. To start the project, first of all, the researcher ran the TOEFL test among 80 students. Then, the Self-esteem Coopersmith inventory was given to the same subjects, after that the researcher asked them to write three different kinds of paragraphs in three forms namely; descriptive, comparison/contrast and cause/effect. However, the last two stages were administered in one session by one week interval. Needless to say, the researcher was available in the class in order to eliminate probable misunderstanding while the subjects were completing all three above-mentioned stages. Finally, in order to come up with the result, the correlation related to the four questions was mea- sured by Pearson-product moment formula, thus, the results of the calculation of correlation coefficient showed a correlation between variables of each question. Based on the above-mentioned results the null hypotheses of this study were all rejected. Meanwhile, the consistency of the raters was calculated by α- Chronbach index showing a high reliability among all raters.
Building a Better Mousetrap: Replacing Subjective Writing Rubrics with More Empirically-Sound Alternatives for EFL Learners  [PDF]
Andrew D. Schenck, Eoin Daly
Creative Education (CE) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2012.38193
Abstract: Although writing rubrics can provide valuable feedback, the criteria they use are often subjective, which compels raters to employ their own tacit biases. The purpose of this study is to see if discreet empirical characteristics of texts can be used in lieu of the rubric to objectively assess the writing quality of EFL learners. The academic paragraphs of 38 participants were evaluated according to several empirically calculable criteria related to cohesion, content, and grammar. Values were then compared to scores obtained from holistic scoring by multiple raters using a multiple regression formula. The resulting correlation between variables (R = .873) was highly significant, suggesting that more empirical, impartial means of writing evaluation can now be used in conjunction with technology to provide student feedback and teacher training.
