Chapters address a full range of critical topics, including the context and process of academic writing, needs analysis, teaching approaches, the interrelationship between writing and vocabulary, intercultural perspectives, feedback, and assessment. Each chapter includes Classroom Implications, tasks and techniques for teaching, and some possible exercises to use with students.
