Uniquely connecting curriculum, writing instruction, and language building, this text for pre-service and in-service teachers offers a step-by-step guide to curriculum design for teaching second language writing, with practical examples and illustrations. The central premise is that writing and language instruction need to be integrated, based on a clear understanding of the writing needs of academic writers, and that principled and language-focused curricula are necessary to guide this endeavor. Bringing together the what and the how-to of developing course curricula with research-based principles of effective teaching in L2 writing courses, what sets this book apart is its overarching focus on language pedagogy and language building. To enhance its usefulness as a course text, each chapter includes an outline of the main points covered; boxed highlights of the discussion and illustrative examples; practice activities and tasks; practical techniques and suggestions for curriculum design and teaching; summary points; and suggested further readings.
