  •  Badia Hakim    


This research is a study of the impact of collaboration on the process-based writing in EFL classrooms in Saudi Arabia. It focuses on methods that contribute to the enhancement of productivity in writing. First, a definition of the term “collaboration” in the process-based EFL writing is presented and then, the advantages of collaborative process-based writing are discussed in further detail. The research mainly focuses on the practical aspects of introducing the building blocks and the procedural aspects of collaborative process-based writing into classrooms in Saudi Arabia. The main goal is to contribute to an overall understanding of collaborative process-based writing. In this context, the instructor tries to help students get further involved in collaborative and dialog-based activities through the process of writing. Another chief goal of introducing this technique is to help students produce better academic writing pieces and improve their writing skills as they move in their writing process from pre-writing to post-writing.
