SUMMARY:

The aim of this study is to understand the teaching of writing in English as L2 among English teachers of the public school system in Belo Horizonte (BH) – MG/Brazil, taking into consideration the material used by them to promote the teaching of writing. Understanding the teacher’s view of their work as well as the material to teach can contribute to the teaching of writing, fulfilling the studies in the field, and showing how important is to develop this skill. Therefore, the investigation of the teaching of writing in English as L2 in public schools of BH, taking into consideration the materials, is the major objective of this master’s thesis. A questionnaire and an interview were the instruments to collect the data. Twenty-tree participants answered the questionnaires and two out of them answered the interview. The analysis considered the theories on the teaching of writing and was alsobased on both the Appraisal System (MARTIN and WHITE, 2005) and Ideation System (MARTIN & ROSE, 2007), which are based on Systemic-Functional Linguistics. Academic studies on teaching materials were taken into account as well. The analysis follows the specific objectives: 1) to identify the view of teaching of writing, 2) to verify If they use eitherthe writing activities from the English textbook provided by the National Textbook Program (PNLD) or writing activities created by them, 3) to identify why the teachers use one of the writing activities and how they evaluate them, 4) to describe both the writing activities from English Textbook and the writing activities they create. The findings show that it is not possible to know exactly which theory on the teaching of writing all teachers use because only two took part in the interview and gave more details of their teaching methods (activities). Besides, the majority of the teachers use both – English textbook and the teaching material they create – to teach writing.The teachers often adapt the English textbook according to their realities. This adaptation is necessary because most of them appreciate negatively the writing activities from textbook considering them as complex and long for the direct use with their students. On the other hand, the writing activities they produce are positively appreciated as simple, shorter and adequate for their students to produce their writing activities, the teachers not only use the internet as major source, but also printed materials as minor source. Finally, this research reveals that the textbook is an important teaching tool to the teacher, and the teaching materials they produce without recognizable visibility show their agency in the teaching of writing English as L2. It is hoped that this study may help in the understanding of teaching this skill among the teachers of the public school system of BH and give visibility on the teacher’s agency. The teaching of writing is possible because they either prepare adequate teaching materials for their students or adapt the writing activities from the textbook.
