The purpose of this study is to find a teaching-learning model that is meaningful for overseas Korean learners as well as foreign learners, to find them choose the subject of an academic essay, expand the content of that essay, and to finally complete the writing process itself. This study examined the effectiveness of various activities (discussions, quizzes, summaries, and establishing a point-of-view), all of which are involved in accurately understanding and interpreting a given work―after a student has studied a novel or movie―by comparing the results of the quizzes and essays related to that work of literature or film. In addition, by comparing the initially written drafts with their revised counterparts, this study showed that the activities mentioned above, along with the feedback of an instructor, are highly effective in the overall literacy level of the students, and with the degree of the completeness of their essays.
In this study, we confirmed that the use of quiz tests as class activities to improve literacy, pair activities for self-checking, and the instructor’s feedback on student writing, all have measurably high effects. As an activity to increase literacy, we confirmed that the understanding of the text is improved in the process of summarizing that given text. Furthermore, this helps students attain a high level of achievement in the process of writing the draft and as well as the final text.
Key Words: Academic Essay, Collaborative Learning, Peer Feedback, Meta-cognition Activities, Literacy, Writing Completeness
