Isi artikelThis paper describes an exploratory study that investigated the e?ects of explicit instruction in revision on learners' performance and perceptions about writing. The learners were from two intact classes of Secondary 4/5 in a school in Hong Kong, who learned to revise. Both groups received instructions in revision after they ®nished writing the ®rst draft. Ques- tionnaires were completed by all students before and after the study and interviews were conducted with a selection of students. Writing performance, at the beginning and end of the study, was measured holistically and compared with a third group that did not learn revision strategies but completed the same pre- and post-study task. The paper describes the instruction that was provided and the ®ndings of the e?ects of revision instruction. The data indicated that explicit teaching of revision strategies had a measurable in¯uence on writing perfor- mance. Student questionnaires and interviews showed a di?erence in the way writing and revision were viewed. It is suggested that language teachers should consider multiple drafting as an alternative to completing a new writing task in their classrooms as explicit instruction in revision may contribute towards developing an awareness of discourse-related features in second language writing.
