Second Language Writing is a highly accessible and authoritative approach to the theory and practice of teaching writing to students of English. It systematically sets out the key issues in second language writing instruction to offer both pre-service and in-service teachers a guide to writing instruction grounded in current theory and research.

The book includes chapters on approaches to teaching writing, needs analysis, syllabus design, lesson planning, task design, materials development, and feedback and assessment, and on using technology in writing classes and in conducting research.

The author takes the clear stance that student writers not only need realistic strategies for drafting and revising, but also need a clear understanding of genre to structure their writing experience according to the demands and constraints of particular target contexts.

There are review exercises, reflection questions, and copious examples to make the book extremely useful to prospective and practicing teachers alike.
