Abstract:

Synthesizing twenty-five years of the most significant and influential
findings of published research on second language writing in English, this
volume promotes understanding and provides access to research developments
in the field. Overall, it distinguishes the major contexts of English L2
learning in North America, synthesizes the research themes, issues, and
findings that span these contexts, and interprets the methodological
progression and substantive findings of this body of knowledge. Of
particular interest is the extensive bibliography, which makes this volume
an essential reference tool for libraries and serious writing
professionals, both researchers and practitioners, both L1 and L2. This
book is designed to allow researchers to become familiar with the most
important research on this topic, to promote understanding of pedagogical
needs of L2 writing students, and to introduce graduate students to L2
writing research findings.
