Developing a Writing Framework to Guide Students’ Writing in Geography, pp. 6 of 7


While there are several limitations to this study relating to the size of the sample and the brevity of the data collection period, the data suggests that the Writing Framework is a plausible intervention measure for students struggling with answering the open-ended Level Descriptor Questions. The findings based on comparing the scores of the two tests indicated an improvement in the quality of students’ writing with the use of the Writing Framework. Students became more aware of what was expected of them and became more conscious of using the geographical concepts in crafting their answers.

This research was undertaken as part of Action Research Skills in General (for Geography teachers) course organised by AST.  Supervised by Dr. Tricia Seow.

An Inspiring Quote

"[Open-mindedness] includes an active desire to listen to more sides than one; to give heed to facts from whatever source they come; to give full attention to alternative possibilities; to recognize the possibility of error even in the beliefs that are dearest to us."

~ John Dewey, How We Think
