Teaching ESL Composition: Purpose, Process, and Practice


"Second-language writing as a field of expertise is relatively new. To date, little has been written to help ESL writing instructors become experts. This text is unique in that it addresses in great detail practical concerns related to the teaching of ESL writing (such as lesson planning, text selection, responding to student writing, assessing student texts, using computers for writing, and more), providing extensive sample materials, figures, appendices, and application activities. At the same time, the text provides current and comprehensive reviews of research and theory in ESL composition in general, as well as a treatment of specific practical topics. Prospective and practicing teachers of ESL writing, as well as researchers examining various issues in second-language composition, will find this important new volume to be distinctively interesting, useful, and relevant."
