Writing is a complex process for all students. However, for those students whose first language is not English, there are even greater complexities. The ESL/ESOL student is required not only to focus on grammar and structure but also to express interesting and creative ideas. For many students, presenting their own ideas and discussing issues have not been significant in their first language education. This workbook has been developed to help teachers address this challenge.
The Writing Workbook uses:
• Strategies to generate ideas.
• Writing models to illustrate genre, grammar points, register, sentence and paragraph structure, and linking techniques.
• Strategies to encourage drafting and self-checking.
