This book provides an authoritative, readable and up-to-date guide to the major themes and developments in current writing theory, research and teaching. Written in a clear, accessible style, it covers theoretical and conceptual issues, addresses current questions and shows how research has fed into state-of-the-art teaching methods, practices, materials and software applications. Thoroughly updated and revised, this second edition also contains a new chapter on important issues in writing such as genre, context and identity. The book includes: * Suggestions for teaching approaches and small-scale, do-able research projects, illustrated with case studies * Clearly laid out discussions of key topics using bullet points, screen shots, sidebars and quote boxes * An extensive compendium of resources including lists of major journals, websites, professional associations, conferences and on-line databases * A recommended reading section and glossary of key terms The combination of teaching and research analysis with practical information makes this an invaluable resource for teachers, supervisors, students, materials writers, trainers and professionals engaged in language study and teaching.
