More Description

Much of what is known about teaching second language writing today has been based on research in English as a second language, writing in English in English-dominant countries and other contexts, without giving close consideration to the important work of teaching foreign language writing in many languages and contexts around the world. FOREIGN LANGUAGE WRITING INSTRUCTION: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES takes a significant step in addressing this imbalance by examining many of the topics that influence foreign language teaching. Fourteen chapters researched and authored by scholars working in nine different countries and regions explore the contexts of foreign language writing pedagogy, the diversity of national and regional approaches, the role of universities, departments, and programs in pedagogy, and the cognitive and classroom dimensions of teaching and learning. This volume provides a cross-section of the current status of foreign language writing instruction, while developing a fuller appreciation for the broadened perspectives that it can bring to second language writing. Both teachers and researchers in foreign language writing will benefit greatly from this collection. - SECOND LANGUAGE WRITINGSeries Editor, Paul Kei Matsuda - CONTRIBUTORS include Rachida Elqobai, Yukiko Abe Hatasa, Icy Lee, Natalie Lefkowitz, Rosa Manch n, Hui-Tzu Min, Marly Nas, Hadara Perpignan, Melinda Reichelt, Marcela Ruiz-Funes, Jean Marie Schultz, Oleg Tarnopolsky, Helga Thorson, Kees van Esch, and Wenyu Wang. - TONY CIMASKO is Visiting Assistant Professor of English at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
