Teaching writing in second and foreign language classrooms
This short, accessible new text in the McGraw-Hill Second Language Professional Series provides research-based information and practical advice to instructors who teach writing to second and foreign language learners. Based on the principles of communicative language teaching, the text can be used as a supplement to other books in the Series or to other main texts. It is appropriate for a basic methods course or a course on second or foreign language writing; it can also be used as part of a preparation course for ESL or foreign language teaching assistants, as a text for continuing education courses for high school ESL teachers, or as an aid for practicing second language teachers.
What people are saying - Write a review
This book is very accessible and does an excellent job of combining theory, the latest research, and practical application. Each chapter provides several questions for discussion in pre-service programs, or for in-service teachers to monitor how they are (or should be) teaching writing in their own classrooms. The book also includes common EFL/ESL discussions, such as whether or not to have peer-review, and if so, how it should be incorporated in the class. Even in the midst of theoretical chunks, there are interrupting questions to help you apply this material to your context.
