Connecting Reading & Writing in Second Language Writing Instruction, Paperback / softback Book

Connecting Reading & Writing in Second Language Writing Instruction Paperback / softback

Part of the Michigan Series on Teaching Multilingual Writers series


In this substantively revised new edition, Hirvela moves beyond the argument he made in the first edition of the value of connecting reading and writing.

This new edition explains various dimensions of those connections and offers a fresh look at how to implement them in L2 writing instruction.

It also provides both new and experienced teachers of writing with a solid grounding in the theoretical foundations and pedagogical possibilities associated with reading-writing connections. The new edition features two new chapters. The first is a chapter on assessment because students are now being asked to connect reading and writing in the classroom and on formal assessments like the TOEFL(R).

The second new chapter is an argument for accounting for transfer elements in the teaching and researching of reading-writing connections. The goals of this revised volume are to provide: resources for those wishing to pursue reading-writing connections, summaries of the beliefs underlying those connections, ideas for teaching the connections in the classroom, and information about the work others have done to develop this domain of L2 writing.
