The Effectiveness of Peer Editing in Motivating Learners to Write in English
Abstract: This case study aimed to explore to what extent peer editing contributed to learners’ development in writing with regard to form and content of the target language, and to figure out the perceptions of parents about raising the motivation and self-confidence of learners. The data was obtained from the written assignments of fourteen participants, parent interview, and field notes. To analyze the data, descriptive techniques were used with the help of the SPSS 22.0 program. The results showed that peer editing has a positive impact on developing learners’ writing skills, motivation, self-confidence, autonomy and sense of responsibility.
