Language writing frames serve as a job aid for the students’ writing task. In instructional design, this type of job aid is called an array. This particular frame addresses the research topic of animals. The purpose of the writing job aid is to assist students with a framework, a starting place for those needing to develop their writing skills. It can be especially helpful for students who speak English as a second language. Moreover, it includes the important scientific elements that students should learn about animals in general. Hence, their research about a particular animal will not omit any of the key characteristics that animals share.
Here's a sample fill-in-the blank statement in the writing frame:
