The main purpose of this quasi-experimental research was to investigate integrating dynamic assessment with process approach to promote GRE argument essay writing. The results indicated that the participants, instructed through the process-oriented approach to second language (L2) writing were more successful in GRE argument writing than those instructed through product-oriented approach. When compared with process group, Process Approach integrated with Dynamic Assessment group performed significantly better on the posttest GRE argument writing. The major implication for this study is that process approach instruction that was integrated with Dynamic assessment could enhance Iranian EFL learners’ argument writing abilities and skills beyond the contributions, made by a process-oriented approach. In fact, this approach helps GRE candidates compose more comprehensible and coherent argument essays and equip GRE teachers with more practical and effective methods of teaching GRE writing.
This book explores cross-cultural and grade-based differences that exist within argument structures and various aspects of language features as constructed by undergraduate students in their argumentative/persuasive essays. It attempts to address a major complaint that academic staff voiced about tertiary student essays, concerning their lack of analytical, critical voice and formality in their arguments.The linguistic evidence for exploring these issues is based mainly on interpersonal systems of interaction, which draws on work dealing with the metaphorical realization of commands, and evaluation termed ''appraisal theory''. Appraisal theory is concerned with the linguistic inflection of subjective attitudes of writers (ATTITUDE) and also their scaling up and down of evaluation (GRADUATION) and intersubjective positioning (ENGAGEMENT). Both theories have been recently developed within a Systemic Functional Linguistics theoretical framework. This book also incorporates a social interactive model derived from ''Interaction in writing'' alongside Bakhtin''s dialogic literacy in order to emphasise a perspective of writer and reader interaction. Under this broad interdisciplinary approach, this book demonstrates that a student?s successful construction of academic argument can be examined from three main perspectives: Interactive (schematic structures), Interactional (the metaphorical realisation of commands), and InterPERSONAL (the three main appraisal systems).
This book offers a new argument for the ancient claim that well-being as the highest prudential good -- eudaimonia -- consists of happiness in a life according to virtue. Virtue is a source of happiness, but happiness also requires external goods. The argument takes into account recent work on happiness, well-being, and virtue, and defends a neo-Aristotelian conception of virtue as an integrated intellectual-emotional disposition that is limited in both scope and stability.
