MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this study is to find out the common errors that elementary level students usually commit in their written work, how the second language teachers address them and how feedback can help our learners. This paper deals exclusively with the written form of the target language. To achieve this objective, I relied on two means- sample writings of the students and a questionnaire for teachers. The sample writings were administered in order to find out the errors and the questionnaire aimed to find out teachers' attitudes towards errors and the techniques they used to provide feedback. This study tries to find out effective solutions of the questions and I believe the findings will help other teachers to fulfill their purposes regarding writing class.
