Title: Process and Product: A cumulative approach to writing pedagogy
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics; Ling & Literature
Abstract: Recently, composing is theoretically viewed as a dynamic process via which student-writers discover what they already know. They, in fact, experience writing as a process of creating meaning. By contrast, student-writers based on the traditional approach were formerly trained to mimetically practice reproducing different types of paragraphs and texts; thus, focusing on the form of the finished product they use and produce. Despite the historic paradigm shift; from product to process, the researcher asserts that student-writers still need structures and models to emulate on writing by process for real audiences and real purposes. As such, the present study investigates the possibility of rationally integrating process and product in L1 or L2 writing classroom settings. Due to the fact that process and product are technically described to appear sharply contrastive; almost mutually exclusive in properties and principles, a consecutive type of eclecticism, to make up for the failure with a simultaneous agenda was justifiably proposed to experimentally comply with. Two options of consecutive eclecticism were hypothetically speculated. They might serve functioning as those of a) product to be followed by process or b) process to be followed by product. Having the contextual and the learner factors taken into consideration, the analysis of those two eclectic options, based on indexes provided, can effectively contribute to help writing practitioners come up with a final decision as to stress one of the versions over the other.
