Since the publication of the first edition in 2002, there have been two major developments in L2 writing and peer response teaching and research. The first is the increased interest in CALL and computer-mediated communication (CMC) for L2 pedagogy; the second is the accessibility and viability of research on L2 peer response from all over the world. Both developments are thoroughly addressed in this new edition. Now that classes are as likely to be online as held in physical classrooms and now that a new generation of digital natives can routinely read and respond to what others write via laptops, tablets, and phones, peer response as pedagogical practice is not just more easily implemented, but it is more likely to feel natural to L2 learners. The Second Edition is a highly accessible guide to how the world is using peer response and serves as a motivator and facilitator for those who want to try it for the first time or want to increase the effectiveness of the activities—whether via CMC or not. The volume includes 11 forms useful in training students to provide good peer feedback, including a final checklist to ensure teachers have taken all the necessary steps to achieve a successful peer feedback activity.

Connecting Reading Writing in Second Language Writing Instruction

As Rigg (1991) explains of this approach, “The four language modes—speaking,
writing, listening, and reading— are mutually supportive ... In this kind of
atmosphere, where the use of all four language skills in close conjunction with
each other is the norm, it becomes natural to connect reading and writing
activities. ... She advocates a “talk prior to writing” and “talk during writing
approach to instruction.

The Handbook of Second and Foreign Language Writing is an authoritative reference compendium of the theory and research on second and foreign language writing that can be of value to researchers, professionals, and graduate students. It is intended both as a retrospective critical reflection that can situate research on L2 writing in its historical context and provide a state of the art view of past achievements, and as a prospective critical analysis of what lies ahead in terms of theory, research, and applications. Accordingly, the Handbook aims to provide (i) foundational information on the emergence and subsequent evolution of the field, (ii) state-of-the-art surveys of available theoretical and research (basic and applied) insights, (iii) overviews of research methods in L2 writing research, (iv) critical reflections on future developments, and (iv) explorations of existing and emerging disciplinary interfaces with other fields of inquiry.

Grounded in applied linguistics research and composition theory and practice, Technologies in the Second Language Composition Classroom encourages teachers to explore the role technology can play in the acquisition of writing for second language students. This research-based volume supports the incorporation of technology into classrooms, providing students with motivation and tools to develop their writing skills. The book provides not only an intellectually engaging perspective on the on-going debates regarding technologically enhanced writing and writing pedagogy, but it also delves in to the technologies themselves, from blogs and blogging to computer-mediated discourse and concordancing. Technology is a growing and rapidly evolving presence in academia, and Joel Bloch brings an informed approach to understanding its place and potential benefits in the classroom. Each chapter includes reflection questions that will help individual readers apply the theories and ideas to their own classrooms. This book will interest ESL teachers in training, teacher educators, current ESL instructors, and researchers and scholars in the area of ESL writing and technology.

Measured Language presents studies using forms of measurement and quantitative analysis current in diverse areas of linguistic research from language assessment to language change, from generative linguistics to experimental psycholinguistics, and from longitudinal studies to classroom research. Contributors share the relevance of their perspectives and findings from seemingly disparate theoretical and methodological perspectives to other areas of linguistic inquiry. The range and clarity of the research collected here ensures that even linguists who would not traditionally use quantitative methods will find this volume useful.

The Oral-Literate Connection: Perspectives on L2 Speaking, Writing, and Other Media Interactionspresents the most current insights from research and theory on the numerous ways in which L2 speaking and writing support and enhance each other. Contributors to this collection not only report on recent research and theoretical developments but also on state-of-the-art pedagogical practices linking oral skills and literacy. Although research and theory are informed by practice throughout the text's four parts, the thematic organization proceeds from more theoretical and research-oriented issues to more classroom-based perspectives: § Theory and research on the interaction between speaking and writing § How speaking scaffolds writing § How writing scaffolds speaking § How technology bridges speaking and writing This volume offers readers both a compelling rationale for connecting speaking and writing in the L2 classroom and an informed means of making these connections. A wide array of theoretical and classroom-oriented topics is offered, ranging from sociocultural and second-language acquisition theory to classroom concordancing and blogging. The book has a foreword by John M. Swales and an Afterword by Paul Kei Matsuda.

Reading-Writing Connections: From Theory to Practice is an extraordinary language arts methods text that enables elementary and middle school teachers to create classroom environments where all students can become lifelong readers and writers. Focusing on developmentally appropriate methods and materials, this remarkably readable book empowers a new generation of teachers to integrate reading, writing, listening, and speaking in K-8 classrooms. Heller's highly accessible writing style makes this book suitable as a primary text for undergraduate and graduate courses in language arts, reading, writing, and literacy. Special features of this second edition include: * a vision of how to transform cutting-edge theory and research into classroom practice that utilizes integrated language arts instruction; *a unique developmental perspective with separate chapters on teaching methods and materials for kindergarten, primary (1-3), intermediate (4-6), and middle grades (7-8); * instructional guidelines that offer generous, detailed suggestions for applying theory to practice, plus "For You to Try" and "For Your Journal" exercises that encourage critical thinking and reflection; and * a wealth of classroom vignettes, examples of students' oral and written language, illustrations, and figures that accentuate interesting and informative theory, research, and practice. In addition, Reading-Writing Connections offers expanded content on the impact of sociocultural theory and the whole language movement on the teaching of reading and writing across the curriculum; greater emphasis on cultural diversity, including new multicultural children's literature booklists that complement the general children's literature bibliographies; and current information on alternative assessment, emerging technologies, the multiage classroom, reader response to literature, and thematic teaching.

This book combines new and time-tested approaches to reading problems by adding usable instructional strategies, assessment tools, research, and an actual Informal Reading Inventory. The book distills many different approaches to teaching students with reading problems, presenting them in an approachable, balanced and readable format. Early chapters present general information on the reading process, problem readers, assessment and the principles of instruction. Later chapters provide in-depth information on strategies for teaching various parts of the literacy process and conclude with chapters detailing successful intervention programs, and teaching in diverse and inclusive settings. Reading Problems is extremely practical, presenting many informal assessment tools and strategies. Yet, it also presents research on intervention programs, multicultural strategies, and extensive descriptions of tests. The needs of adolescents and adults are also emphasized. For educators of grades K-3, parents, or anyone interested in literacy assessment and teaching strategies.
