Strategy Development in Writing English as a Second Language for students with Specific Learning Difficulties

Session

Education and Development

Description

Writing is a demanding process across every curriculum and as an integrated process within the school can be a great challenge for students with typical development but also with those who encounter specific learning difficulties, so finding effective ways to manage it can be a key for every student to succeed. Students in Kosovo struggle with writing in English and it seems like a great challenge to improve for all of those who have specific learning difficulties. Based on this fact, there are many quality methods on teaching children to write, as writing should be completed daily in a predictable method that asks students to create and revise their work. As of this statement, there might be lots of reasons why students have difficulties in writing, one of them can be the most obvious one that they have never been taught how to write in English or they might have never had a strategy that would help them accomplish the writing tasks as most of the time the writing skills were developed by learning parts of speech, various types of sentences or how to diagram sentences. Another reason could be that the teachers are more focused on developing creative and self-expression skills. This paper outlines the difficulties that students have in writing in ESL, steps of the writing process and the strategies teachers can use to assist students with learning difficulties, so there is no one left behind

Strategy Development in Writing English as a Second Language for students with Specific Learning Difficulties

Pristina, Kosovo

Writing is a demanding process across every curriculum and as an integrated process within the school can be a great challenge for students with typical development but also with those who encounter specific learning difficulties, so finding effective ways to manage it can be a key for every student to succeed. Students in Kosovo struggle with writing in English and it seems like a great challenge to improve for all of those who have specific learning difficulties. Based on this fact, there are many quality methods on teaching children to write, as writing should be completed daily in a predictable method that asks students to create and revise their work. As of this statement, there might be lots of reasons why students have difficulties in writing, one of them can be the most obvious one that they have never been taught how to write in English or they might have never had a strategy that would help them accomplish the writing tasks as most of the time the writing skills were developed by learning parts of speech, various types of sentences or how to diagram sentences. Another reason could be that the teachers are more focused on developing creative and self-expression skills. This paper outlines the difficulties that students have in writing in ESL, steps of the writing process and the strategies teachers can use to assist students with learning difficulties, so there is no one left behind
