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.
