Abstract:

This volume synthesizes and critically analyzes the literature on response
to the writing of second language students, and discusses the implications
of the research for teaching practice in the areas of written and oral
teacher commentary on student writing, error correction, and facilitation
of peer response.

The book features numerous examples of student texts and teacher
commentary, as well as figures and appendices that summarize research
findings and present sample lessons and other teaching materials. It is
thus simultaneously comprehensive in its approach to the existing research
and highly practical in showing current and future teachers how this
material applies to their everyday endeavors of responding to student
writing and teaching composition classes.

Response to student writing--whether it takes the form of teachers' written
feedback on content, error correction, teacher-student conferences, or peer
response--is an extremely important component of teaching second language
writing. Probably no single activity takes more teacher time and energy.
Response to Student Writing is a valuable theoretical and practical
resource for those involved in this crucial work, including L2 composition
researchers, in-service and preservice teachers of ESOL/EFL writers, and
teacher educators preparing graduate students for the teaching of writing.
