Islam Asim Ismail, Veda Sharan
This paper constitutes a relatively new area that has emerged from the relation between writing skills and literature. Admittedly, it is often believed that literature is rich in linguistic knowledge and has been proved as a good source of well-developed structure. Namely that English teachers nowadays are concerned about their teaching style; thus, they are seeking new ways to teach the writing skill effectively, one of which is using literature to improve students’ writing skills. Therefore, this study tries to find out the effectiveness of literature as a tool in improving the writing skill for students at primary levels. To achieve this aim, the researcher interviewed (20) male and female teachers who are selected semi-randomly from public schools in Palestine; West Bank and Gaza Strip. In this respect, the present paper explores teachers’ opinions regarding using literature as a tool to improve students’ writing skills. Results showed that teachers should invest more time and effort to make the best use of literature. Based on the results, the researcher recommended doing an experimental study between two groups to explore to what extant literature helps students in learning language skills.
