Title: Teaching Writing in Chinese Speaking Areas
Edited By: Mark Shiu Kee Shum
De Lu Zhang
Series Title: Studies in Writing, Vol. 16
Description:

One of the most civilized nations in history, China has a long-standing
writing tradition and many Chinese texts have become world treasures.
However, the way the Chinese teach writing in various countries in
contemporary times is little known to the outside world, especially in
Western countries. Undoubtedly, the Chinese have had an established
traditional method of writing instruction. However, recent social and
political developments have created the perception amongst both
practitioners and researchers of a need for change. Whilst certain
socio-political changes, both in Mainland China and in the territories,
acted as agents for reform of the teaching of composition, the shape these
reforms are taking has been due to many different influences, coming both
from inside the countries themselves and from foreign sources. Mainland
China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore have each developed their own
approach to the teaching of composition.

Written for:

University libraries, researchers, teachers of composition studies within
Chinese-speaking areas, readers including teachers teaching Chinese,
researchers interested in research in Chinese language and in comparison
between Chinese and other languages.
