This graduate seminar is designed to engage future language instructors in teaching and learning of second/foreign language writing. We reflect on pertinent issues in teaching second language (L2) writing to linguistically and culturally diverse learners, both from a pedagogical and research perspective. Students in this course explore current approaches to L2 writing, including process-oriented, genre-focused, model-based, and task-based approaches. Through critical reading and interactive discussions, individual and group projects, and reflective activities, we explore differences between L1 and L2 writing; learners' beliefs and needs regarding L2 writing; scaffolding the writing process and designing effective writing tasks; peer collaboration and feedback in L2 writing; and assessing writing. Students in this course get hands-on experience in designing their own teaching materials, including an instructional unit for an L2 writing course. 3 hours seminar. (021961)
