Students generally find it challenging to generate ideas in composition writing. This affects the content of their essays. They also do not receive sufficient feedback rapidly as it takes time for a teacher to complete marking the entire class’s work. Apart from the speed of the feedback received, students usually get feedback only from their teachers. Therefore there is currently little or no self or peer feedback given to students.

Henceforth this project involves the design and implementation of a framework centered on experiential learning together with self and peer feedback. The experiential learning, which is based on Kolb's learning cycle, will help the students to generate ideas for content. Thereafter students will be introduced to Automated Marking Tools that provide immediate and substantive feedback to address shortfalls in spelling, punctuation, basic grammar and sentence structure. Students will also engage in self and peer feedback using Making Thinking Visible (MTV) tools with specially designed checklists.

Despite the challenges faced, this approach successfully addressed the concerns in composition writing.
