Raising Critical Consciousness via Creative Writing in the EFL ClassroomRaising Critical Consciousness via Creative Writing in the EFL Classroom

This study discusses a method to promote raising critical consciousness in the English as a foreign language (EFL) classroom through creative writing activities by getting students write journals and/or personal letters from the perspective of individuals from outside groups that have been marginalized or vilified in the students' dominant culture.

These activities are intended to encourage students to adopt new perspectives on polarizing topics while also being an enjoyable and effective means to practice English writing. Furthermore, it is recommended that these activities also be used to serve as segues to deeper critical discourse on related issues.
