I would suggest real life application. Is there an educator within your building that would be willing to working on a cross curricular project?

Is it necessary to give them a writing model? I mean that some students do not know how to organize their ideas logically. Maybe I can offer them some useful expressions before writing? By the way, English is a second language in China.
I am sure that a writing model would be helpful. I would also think that if they began writing about something concrete that was later reinforced by another subject then it would have a greater impact. It would provide context. Even though I am a science instructor, I see great value in having my students write with a practical purpose in mind. Even basic things like listing steps to a problem or trying to explain their choices during a project seem to increase student learning (in both science and writing).
