The Process Genre Approach to Teaching Writing
According to Badger and White, the teaching procedure for the process genre approach is divided into the following six steps: (1) preparation, (2) modeling, (3) planning, (4) joint constructing, (5) independent constructing, and (6) revising.
The various activities within the Process Genre Approach include the following: providing extended opportunities for writing; emphasizing writing for real audiences; encouraging cycles of planning, focusing on reviewing and sharing; encouraging student interaction; developing self-reflection and evaluation skills; and offering brief, pointed micro-lessons and individualized conferences to meet learners’ instructional needs. These interwoven activities ensure that grammatical and conventional items are taught in the context of a particular writing genre and purpose.
