Language Skills College & University Education Poster Session

Reflections on the Effects of Free Writing in an EFL Writing Class

Sat, Nov 13, 12:45-13:45 Asia/Tokyo

Location: Room 21

Japanese university students are often required to perform free writing activities in their English language classes in an attempt to encourage confidence in writing in English. This poster will explain the free writing activities used in the authors’ courses, provide quantitative and qualitative data describing the participants’ writing activities, and discuss the students’ reflection on their free writing experiences. Attendees will receive ideas for effectively employing free writing in their English language classes.
