Abstract

This article reviews the application of collaboration, which is very rarely implemented in the EFL process based writing classroom in Indonesia. It also tries to expand the scope of collaboration in all aspects of the EFL college writing process. First, this article addresses the operational definition of collaboration in process based EFL writing instruction. In what follows, the article sheds light on the benefits of collaborative process based writing in the EFL classroom. The remaining section of the article discusses step-by-step procedures for collaborative process based writing in the classroom. Anchored in this collaborative process based writing framework, a teacher enables students to engage in collaborative and dialogic activities through the process of writing. The ultimate goal is to help EFL college students write academic pieces better and more easily as they go through the writing process from pre-writing to post-writing.

 

Key words: Collaboration, college students, process based writing, the EFL classroom
