Full paper


This study investigated Chinese narrative writing among 50 secondary students in Singapore. It aimed to design and orchestrate a Chinese narrative writing pedagogy (CNWP) using metacognitive writing process and pedagogical approach of making thinking visible with technology. Both quantitative and qualitative data in Design-based Research (DBR), including writing performance, course feedback questionnaires, focus group interviews and teacher’s reflections, were collected. The result indicated that CNWP significantly improved students’ narrative writing performance. The Chinese language teacher and most students had positive attitudes toward CNWP, as it positively affected students’ writing confidence, writing strategies, and metacognition. Using design-based research, this study has detailed the process of improving CNWP and provided effective pedagogical strategies for Chinese narrative writing.
