The Effectiveness of Using Prose-Model Approach in Improving ESL Learners’ Writing Skill in Development and Arrangement Their Ideas
This research investigates the effectiveness of the prose-model approach in improving ESL students’ writing performance in development and arranging their ideas in writing. A total of twenty-eight students in Form Two are randomly selected as subjects for collecting the data. Experimental design is used in this study to suit the need of the research done. For the first step, the pre-writing test is used to identify the primary writing skill. Then, after the ‘treatment’ is given, the post-writing test is used to show the effectiveness of using the prose-model approach to improve the students’ writing skills. The experiment of the prose-model approach assessment will then be conducted (with the help of the English teacher) within allocation time. Their pre-writing test and the post-writing test were observed and marked. This process was done for at least three months. The students’ achievement (in grade) was analysed and presented in reports, figures, and percentages. The data collected was based on using the prose-model approach, before and after by comparing the grades they get from the pre-writing test and post-writing test. For teachers, it is crucial to find a way to improve students’ writing performance. Writing is a complex and creative process. What they present in their writing gives us a picture of their level of growth in thinking. Therefore, a new technique is needed to help students to write better in the English language.
