ESL Readers and Writers in Higher Education : Understanding Challenges, Providing Support Paperback / softback

Edited by Norman W. Evans, Neil J. Anderson, William G. Eggington

Part of the ESL & Applied Linguistics Professional Series series

Description

ESL Readers and Writers in Higher Education describes the challenges ESL students in U.S. postsecondary institutions face when studying in a second language, and offers suggestions for how teachers, advisors, tutors, and institutions might provide support that meets the reading and writing needs of this very important student population. Because the ESL profession as a whole, including what professionals are doing in the classroom, sits under the umbrella of an institutional response to a language-related challenge, some solutions aimed at helping students achieve optimal proficiency lie outside of the classroom.

As such, this book is based on the assertion that language development support is not the sole responsibility of language teachers.

Everyone on campuses that hosts ESL students bears some responsibility for these students' language development.

Chapters are therefore, intentionally adapted to appeal to a wide variety of readers from classroom teachers, and teachers in training, to admissions officers, academic advisors, and international student advisors.
