The classroom practices discussed in Effective Second Language Writing reflect various trends and methodologies; however, the underlying theme in this volume of the Classroom Practice Series is the need for clear and meaningful communication between ESL writers and their readers. Though approaches differ, two core beliefs are constant: ESL students have something important to say, and ESL writing teachers can help them say it. Effective instruction starts with meaningful writing tasks, integrates a variety of skills and technologies, builds competencies, requires critical thinking, and employs appropriate resources. This volume of ideas and insights will enable ESL teachers to help their writing students find purposeful voices that resonate across countries, customs, disciplines, and cultures.
