Title: Academic Writing and Genre
Subtitle: A Systematic Analysis
Written By: Ian Bruce
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com/books/detail.aspx?BookId=157176&SearchType=Basic
Description:

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced book.

The focus of this book is the use of genre-based approaches to teaching
academic writing. Genre-based courses enable second language learners to
integrate their linguistic, organisational and contextual knowledge in a
variety of different tasks. The book reviews pedagogical approaches to
genre through English for Specific Purposes and Systemic Functional
Linguistics to present a synthesis of the current research being undertaken
in the field. From this theoretical base, Ian Bruce proposes a new model of
genre-based approaches to academic writing, and analyses the ways in which
this can be implemented in pedagogy and curriculum design.

Academic Writing and Genre is a cutting-edge monograph which will be
essential reading for researchers in applied linguistics.

"The book is informative, clearly written and well organized. It is a
significant contribution to the genre discussion in general, and to the
teaching of academic writing in particular… This book is a valuable resource."
Marina Santini, Linguist List

"The most valuable characteristic of Academic writing and genre is that it
provides a rich and detailed discussion on the need for the inclusion of
both social and cognitive genres. The author successfully manages to guide
readers towards a general as well as comprehensive understanding of the
necessity to deploy the dual processing theory of language learning and use."
