APLN 531/5312 - Second Language Reading and Writing: Theory and Practice (3 cr.)



Prerequisites
  .

Description
This course will survey research and theory in EFL/ESL reading and writing and explore pedagogical applications. We will consider a number of reader/writer and text factors that play a role in second language (L2) reading and writing. As second language reading encompasses top-down, bottom-up, and interactive approaches, we will investigate how these approaches function interactively. We will further explore how the field of L2 writing has been influenced by L1 writing but has also become a distinct area of inquiry in its own right. We will examine students’ writing and observe them in their classes, design activities and evaluate materials and textbooks.
