Linguistic LingField(s):  Discourse Analysis
Writing Systems

Query:   In TEFL area, I work on a project and a M.A. thesis these days. My
colleagues and I demonstrate the relationship between discursive structures
and ideological structures in formal sample speeches through Fairclough’s
(1989,1995) Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) model. This process is
performed in Persian that is our native language.

On the other hand, we’ve decided to use the results of this critical
analysis in teaching English. Since we have seen lots of shortcomings in
our subjects’ essays (our subjects are upper-intermediate learners of
English) which all came from their ignorance of using discursive
structures, we tried to show the importance of main discursive structures
and their lacks in our subjects’ writings. Here, we want to provide a
connection between our CDA results and their pedagogical application in
writing but we cannot agree on the methodology for providing this goal.

Please, tell us:

What methodology can we use here? And, How can we indicate this connection
