This paper has two major objectives: to review some fundamental considerations in designing a writing curriculum and to reflect on the major anomalies in the teaching of writing to Tunisian students of English in the LMD system.1 It is intended to share thoughts with fellow Tunisian teachers and students on the teaching methodology adopted in writing classes, students’ achievement in different types of assignments and tests, and the ways of improving the quality of the writing curriculum. Tunisia’s move to the LMD system in 2007 has not been followed by a thorough evaluation of the graduates’ writing skills, nor of the teaching methodology adopted in writing classes. This paper seeks to fill this gap by proposing a variety of solutions to maximize students’ production and improve the quality of their writings.
