A strategy to expand third year students’ skills to build expository texts. (Original)
The teaching- learning process of building written texts constitutes a growing concern for the English major teaching staff at the University of Granma. However, in spite of the efforts made, some levels of dissatisfaction still persist as far as the students´ preparation in terms of writing skills. Their records do not always meet the required needs to perform their duty appropriately. For these reasons, the authors of the present work decided to design a strategy supported on the text building process to develop and improve writing skills in the third year students of the English Major. They consider it suitable to apply the strategy along with expository texts taking for granted the complexity this mode of discourse poses for third year students.
