Slutsåld

There are many myths surrounding the teaching of writing, especially to second language learners.Each myth included was selected based on classroom experience and expertise. The myths discussed in this book are: teaching vocabulary is not the writing teacher's job; teaching citation is someone else's job; where grammar is concerned, one size fits all; academic writing should be assertive and certain; students must learn to correct all their writing errors; corpus-based research is too complicated to be useful for writing teachers; academic writing courses should focus on paragraph and essay development; and International and U.S. resident ESL writers cannot be taught in the same class.The book concludes with a discussion of students' myths about academic writing and teaching written by Joy Reid.This book looks at how myths affect the teaching of writing.
