Title: Learning-to-Write and Writing-to-Learn in an Additional Language
Edited By: Rosa Manchón
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/lllt.31
Series Title: Language Learning & Language Teaching 31
Description:

This book is a pioneer attempt to bridge the gap between the fields of second
language acquisition (SLA) and second and foreign language (L2) writing. Its
ultimate aim is to advance our understanding of written language learning by
compiling a collection of theoretical meta-reflections and empirical studies that
shed new light on two crucial dimensions of the theory and research in the field:
first, the manner in which L2 users learn to express themselves in writing (the
learning-to-write dimension), and, second, the manner in which the engagement
in written output practice can contribute to developing competences in an L2
(the writing-to-learn dimension). These two areas of disciplinary inquiry have up
until now developed separately: the learning-to-write dimension has been the
cornerstone of L2 writing research, whereas the writing-to-learn one has been
theorized and researched within SLA studies, hence the relevance of the book
for exploring L2 writing-SLA interfaces.
