Abstract

There have been numerous empirical studies argue that if the students become intrinsically interested in certain specific subject, their learning performance may be facilitated. In other words, in the process of learning, interest potentially acts a crucial role and have direct impact on the learning outcomes. In addition to cognitive aspects, however, the affective aspects are also necessary to take into consideration. Therefore, how to cultivate students’ interest has increasingly become a research issue recently. The objective of the present study is to propose the prototype of the six-stage story structure (4S) approach designed based on interest-driven creator (IDC) theory and expect to enhance students’ learning of Chinese writing at the stage of elementary education. To this end, a series of learning activities for the 4S approach have been developed in accordance with the conceptual framework of interest and creation loop in IDC theory. To further examine the effectiveness on students’ learning performance and interest, the evaluating rubrics for writing quality and interest questionnaire are developed with reference to prior literatures. Moreover, the relevant descriptions of the 4S approach are described in detail, and the future works are also discussed.
