Writing Instruction for English Learners: A Focus on Genre

Moving beyond the writing process, this useful resource is filled with activities and graphic organizers to help students understand and then produce various types of writing: narrative, expository, persuasive and poetic. Each writing type includes multiple genres-for example, the persuasive form comprises letters, editorials, advertisements, and essays/compositions-and the author does a good job of differentiating the components of these genres, as well as sequencing and scaffolding related classroom exercises. Not just for ESL or ELA instructors, this book will support content-area teachers as they deliver instruction on the writing demands of their discipline.
