• Instructor’s feedback: I gave them feedback in our next class and discussed the common mistakes identified from the essays.

To encourage deep learning, I used standard symbols in giving feedback and students should, then, correct their own errors by using the symbols as clues to the type of errors they made.

• Analyzing a comparison and contrast text: An analysis of a text is carried out to show how comparison and contrast essays can be used in their academic writing.

Then students read a selected text and analyzed it in groups.

The groups are composed of different ability groups and there was a secretary in each group to report the group ’s discussion results to the whole group.

The questions which focused their analysis and discussions in the groups helped them comprehend the passage’s content, and of the writer’s purpose and audience; to recognize the stylistic, structural techniques and organization used to shape the essay.

Objectives: Students will be able to • analyze a comparison and contrast essay and distinguish the difference between the two; • identify purpose, and audience as well as style and structure from a comparison and contrast essay; • use invention strategies to generate and organize their ideas for a comparison and contrast essay; • develop an outline, introductory paragraph with a thesis statement, body paragraphs with topic and clincher sentences and a conclusion; • write a unified, coherent, and well-developed comparison and contrast essay; • recognize the value of process writing, self-correction, peer feedback and instructor’s feedback to write a unified, coherent, and well-developed essay; and • appreciate how this pattern of writing is related to their every day and academic writings.
