Could be useful for study skills sessions or embedding functional English?

Download this Free book! Excellent resources.

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, November 26, 2013 9:21 AM

Not research per se, but an e-book aimed at training teachers. Includes units on using apps and tools and fpcsing in general on the teaching of writing in the so-called 'digital age'.

 

No mere pamhplet either, this is a proper book!

Born Again in a Second Language

Born Again in a Second Language | Resources for Teaching L2 Writing | Scoop.it
To abandon your native tongue and adopt another is to dismantle yourself, piece by piece, and then to put yourself together again in a different form.
Randy Rebman's insight:

Rarely do teachers talk about what it means to learn a second langauge on this level. Bradatan likens learning to write and use another language as a change of religion, a remaking of the self.

Giving Feedback on Student Writing: An Innovative Approach - Faculty Focus | Faculty Focus

Giving Feedback on Student Writing: An Innovative Approach - Faculty Focus | Faculty Focus | Resources for Teaching L2 Writing | Scoop.it

This blog post reports on an interesting approach to assessment from an article published in the British journal, Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education involving the use of something called interactive cover sheets.

Randy Rebman's insight:

What I like about this approach to feedback is that students are asked to take more control of the feedback they elicit on their writing. It might take some time to train students to ask the right questions, but perhaps this would be appropriate for advanced L2 writers.
