Exploring Topos: The impact of Kria on Students' expository writing


  • Elia Flink

Summary, in English

Recent educational research emphasizes the increasing importance of expository writing
skills. However, many students struggle with this genre as they progress through higher
grades. This study explores the potential of the rhetorical exercise "kria" as a tool to enhance
students' expository writing abilities. Through observations and student reflections, the study
examines the impact of kria in a high school located in northeastern Skåne. Although students
found the complex language and the limited time a challenge, the findings suggest that kria
can provide valuable tools for improving high school students' expository writing proficiency.
