This paper attempts to give an insight into what constitutes as writing in Indian schools, and the underlying assumptions about writing and its teaching. I will begin with a brief outline of writing tasks assigned in the majority of our schools. Next, I will describe and critique the guiding framework for assumptions about writing and its teaching in our schools—the Product approach. Finally, I will present a research-based alternative perspective on writing, and its implications for the teaching of writing.
