AN ANALYSIS OF WRITTEN EXPRESSIONS OF TURKISH CHILDREN LIVING IN MACEDONIA
For years, from the ancient times of the history, Turks have been going on existing in the territory of Macedonia. Today, Turks living in Macedonia are being educated in their native language within the framework of constitutional rights. But there are some problems with Turkish education in the region. This study aims to determine the level of written expression skills of Turkish students studying in the 7th grade of primary education in Macedonia. In addition, written expression skills have been examined in terms of some variables. The scanning model was used in the study. In this research, it was studied with 310 Turkish students studying in the 7th grade primary school of the public schools of the Republic of Macedonia. As a result of the research, it has been realized that the level of written narration is very low. In written expression, the students have been found to be more cautious about the “plan”; on the other hand they are more ineffective in the dimensions of “main idea”, “paper layout and writing”, “subject”, “language and expression”, “marking and punctuation”. Whereas the scores for the “title” content have the lowest average.
