Informative, insightful, and accessible, this book is designed to enhance the capacity of graduate and undergraduate students, as well as early career scholars, to write for academic purposes. Fang describes key genres of academic writing, common rhetorical moves associated with each genre, essential skills needed to write the genres, and linguistic resources and strategies that are functional and effective for performing these moves and skills. Fang’s functional linguistic approach to academic writing enables readers to do so much more than write grammatically well-formed sentences. It leverages writing as a process of designing meaning to position language choices as the central focus, illuminating how language is a creative resource for presenting information, developing argument, embedding perspectives, engaging audience, and structuring text across genres and disciplines. Covering reading responses, book reviews, literature reviews, argumentative essays, empirical research articles, grant proposals, and more, this text is an all-in-one resource for building a successful career in academic writing and scholarly publishing. Each chapter features crafts for effective communication, authentic writing examples, practical applications, and reflective questions. Fang complements these features with self-assessment tools for writers and tips for empowering writers. Assuming no technical knowledge, this text is ideal for both non-native and native English speakers, and suitable for courses in academic writing, rhetoric and composition, and language/literacy education.

Hear a podcast where David West Brown and Rebecca Wheeler discuss code-switching. In Other Words is a tour de force. As a linguist and teacher educator, I am grateful to David West Brown for bringing his powerhouse of knowledge and real-world savvy to our 21st-century English classrooms. -Rebecca S. Wheeler Coauthor of Code Switching In Other Words provides teachers with practical step-by-step suggestions for helping secondary students understand and produce the academic writing expected in school. No other text on writing that I am familiar with lays out the keys to successful academic writing as well as this book does. -David E. Freeman Coauthor of Essential Linguistics Grammar doesn't have to be boring! David West Brown shows us how to facilitate students' use of standard English in their writing, lifting grammar from the page and into students' habits. -Douglas Fisher Coauthor of Word Wise & Content Rich Some of your students may need a better grasp on conventional grammar. Others may need help with the demands of academic writing. Still others may write in Vernacular English or have limited English proficiency. But all of them need to be able to use Standard English well to succeed in school and in the workplace. In Other Words helps adolescents build facility with the formal register of school by connecting its conventions to the conventions of the language they speak outside the classroom. In Other Words presents 35 detailed, practical, and sensitive lessons using examples drawn from commonly taught literature and from popular culture. For students who need it most, you'll increase their exposure to academic English. At the same time, you'll support deeper language study throughout the classroom. Lessons on informal English help students find alternatives to commonly spoken but academically inappropriate expressions such as the colloquial like. Lessons on Vernacular English bridge the language of home and school to help vernacular speakers code-switch effectively and master formal writing. Lessons on academic language help all students internalize the subtle grammatical structures that separate academic writing from other genres. For each lesson, David West Brown provides a concise background in the supporting theory, as well as reproducible student handouts. And a Making the Lessons Your Own section helps you extend his ideas for code-switching and language study into both the writing process and assessment. It offers specifics for both integrating language study into your teaching and conducting ongoing assessments. Use In Other Words and embed language study into everything you do. You'll soon see that while there's no such thing as a standard student, every student can communicate effectively in Standard English.

Student academic writing is at the heart of teaching and learning in higher education. Students are assessed largely by what they write, and need to learn both general academic conventions as well as disciplinary writing requirements in order to be successful in higher education. Teaching Academic Writing is a 'toolkit' designed to help higher education lecturers and tutors teach writing to their students. Containing a range of diverse teaching strategies, the book offers both practical activities to help students develop their writing abilities and guidelines to help lecturers and tutors think in more depth about the assessment tasks they set and the feedback they give to students. The authors explore a wide variety of text types, from essays and reflective diaries to research projects and laboratory reports. The book draws on recent research in the fields of academic literacy, second language learning, and linguistics. It is grounded in recent developments such as the increasing diversity of the student body, the use of the Internet, electronic tuition, and issues related to distance learning in an era of increasing globalisation. Written by experienced teachers of writing, language, and linguistics, Teaching Academic Writing will be of interest to anyone involved in teaching academic writing in higher education.
