|Title||The Impact of a Remedial Program on English Writing Skills of the Seventh Grade Low Achievers at UNRWA Schools in Rafah|
The purpose of the study was to examine the impact of a remedial program on English writing skills of the seventh grade low achievers at UNRWA Schools in Rafah . For answering the questions of the study, the researcher adopted the experimental approach. The sample of the study consisted of (127 ) seventh grade low achiever students distributed into four groups . Two experimental groups i.e. a male group consisting of (31) students and a female group consisting of (37) students . The others are two control groups i.e. a male group consisting of (25) students and a female group consisting of (34) students. The researcher used the sample from Rafah Prep Boys "E" school and Rafah Prep Girls "D" school. Both are UNRWA schools in Rafah Governorate where two teachers administered the experiment and were helped and guided by the researcher . The remedial program was used in teaching the experimental group, while the ordinary teaching periods and the textbook was used with the control one in the second term of the scholastic year (2009-2010). A writing test of three scopes with (30) items was designed and validated to be used as a pre and post test. The data of the study were analyzed, using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS), to confirm the test validity and reliability. On the other hand, Mann Whitney, t. test paired and independent sample were used to measure the statistical differences in mean between the experimental groups due to the use of the remedial program. The study indicated that there are statistically significant differences at the level (α = 0.05) on English writing skills of the seventh grade low achievers in favour of the experimental groups. It means that the use of the program in the remedy of the weaknesses of the writing skills of the low achievers had a significant impact on the students. Based on those findings, the study recommended the necessity of implementing remedial programs for the low achievers to bring about better outcomes in students' writing skills of the English language.
