Overview

In keeping with the spirit of the first edition, Teaching ESL Composition: Purpose, Process, and Practice, Second Edition presents pedagogical approaches to the teaching of ESL composition in the framework of current theoretical perspectives on second language writing processes, practices, and writers.

The text as a whole moves from general themes to specific pedagogical concerns. A primary goal is to offer a synthesis of theory and practice in a rapidly evolving community of scholars and professionals. The focus is on providing apprentice teachers with practice activities that can be used to develop the complex skills involved in teaching second language writing. Although all topics are firmly grounded in reviews of relevant research, a distinguishing feature of this text is its array of hands-on, practical examples, materials, and tasks, which are presented in figures and in the main text. The synthesis of theory and research in a form that is accessible to preservice and in-service teachers enables readers to see the relevance of the field's knowledge base to their own present or future classroom settings and student writers.

Each chapter includes:
*Questions for Reflection—pre-reading questions that invite readers to consider their own prior experiences as students and writers and to anticipate how these insights might inform their own teaching practice;
*Reflection and Review—follow-up questions that ask readers to examine and evaluate the theoretical information and practical suggestions provided in the main discussion; and
*Application Activities—a range of hands-on practical exercises, such as evaluating and synthesizing published research, developing lesson plans, designing classroom activities, executing classroom tasks, writing commentary on sample student papers, and assessing student writing.

The dual emphasis on theory and practice makes this text appropriate as a primary or supplementary text in courses focusing on second language writing theory, as well as practicum courses that emphasize or include second language writing instruction or literacy instruction more generally.

New in the Second Edition:
*updated research summaries consider new work that has appeared since publication of the first edition;
*revised chapter on research and practice in the use of computers in second language writing courses covers recent developments;
*streamlined number and type of Application Activities focus on hands-on practice exercises and critical analysis of primary research; and
*revisions throughout reflect the authors' own experiences with the text and reviewers'suggestions for improving the text.

    very informative book for ESL writing teachers and scholars

    This book has a very comprehensive discussion on ESL writing. It has chapters dedicated to theoretical and practical issues, L2 literacy, designing a syllabus, text and material choice and design, teacher feedback, peer response, errors, assessment, and technology. I think it really is great in that it covers all of the forefront issues for ESL writing. The book is kind of dry and not necessarily an entertaining read, but its value as an information source outweighs that. For that reason, I would say that this book is a must have for any serious TESOL student, writing teacher, or scholar. Ferris and Hedgcock are definitely two of the main authorities on this topic, and this book helps explain why that is so.
