4. BENEFITS OF PROCESS WRITING:

Fosters Creativity: Unlike product writing, process writing does not have a model text as the starting point. That means that learners have the chance to use their previous knowledge and start thinking about a text based on the ideas that they come up with. When planning to use a process approach to writing, however, it is important to think about what type of text - or textual genre - the students will be asked to produce. If learners need to write a narrative, an article or an essay, focusing on ideas first might be a good choice. However, if the genre conventions are very fixed, like in e-mails, formal letters, or reports, a product approach to writing might be more suitable.

Encourages Collaborative Work: Most stages of process writing allow for group work and peer collaboration. Learners can work together while they generate and select ideas - they might end up many more ideas in the pre-writing phase if this is done collaboratively. Feedback is of paramount importance when writing is seen as a process. As learners can (and should!) write multiple drafts when this approach is adopted, feedback is present throughout. Instead of being provided by the teacher only, there is room for peer feedback and peer correction.

5.CONCLUSION:

If you ask does the process writing approach have a significant effect on the essay writing performance of the participants?

Yes, process writing approach helps in paragraph writing in a very positive and significant way as process writing approach focuses on the process of text construction, many aspects that are central to writing. It would improve the cadets' thinking because they know how to think about what to write, and analyse a text added to the brainstorming activities. As a part of a class activity it can be used to raise awareness of how a text has been planned and organized, hence significantly improve the writing performance of cadets.
