As a communicative unit, a text has a multi-layer structure. Text layers are relevant to competent systems in language acquisition: Microstructure for linguistic competence, macrostructure for communicative competence and superstructure for generic competence. Texts are sequences of propositions from microstructures to macrostructures or vice versa in the process of comprehension or production. With this qualitative research the standardization in the context of teaching the construction of text structure hierarchically through the activities on written texts has been questioned in teaching English and Turkish as a foreign language.
