Abstract: The purpose of this study was to explore the impact of a WebQuest-based writing instruction on developing Greek EFL learners’ writing skills. Another aim of the study was to examine students’ attitudes towards the use of WQs. The study adopts the quasi-experimental design. The study includes both qualitative and quantitative data. The findings of the study revealed that the experimental students significantly improved their writing scores after the WQ application when compared to the control group, which seems to validate the first hypothesis that WQs have positive effects on writing skills. In addition, the findings showed that most students had positive attitudes towards the WQ activity as a whole. The findings of this study suggest that implementing WQs in the EFL classrooms benefits primary school students’ writing ability and improves their attitudes towards writing.
