Approaches to Content-Based Academic Writing

    Soraya Khonsari


Due to the students lack of motivation in studying GE (General English) text books, content-based writing was experienced as a new procedure to teaching English to the students of Science and Technology. Content course syllabus for Chemistry was divided into different topics and each topic was allocated to one student. The students were asked to refer to the library and try to gather as much information as they could. Then they had to arrange the material they gathered, organize and structure them into a linear piece of discussion. The result was quite satisfactory. These students had a better Vocabulary, Grammar, Reading Comprehension, and Writing compared to the students in GE. Their scores in their content course were also higher than the scores of the students in GE course.
