Abstract:

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 teachingacademic writing. Genre-based courses enable second language learners tointegrate their linguistic, organisational and contextual knowledge in avariety of different tasks. The book reviews pedagogical approaches togenre through English for Specific Purposes and Systemic FunctionalLinguistics to present a synthesis of the current research being undertakenin the field. From this theoretical base, Ian Bruce proposes a new model ofgenre-based approaches to academic writing, and analyses the ways in whichthis can be implemented in pedagogy and curriculum design.

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

"The book is informative, clearly written and well organized. It is asignificant contribution to the genre discussion in general, and to theteaching 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 itprovides a rich and detailed discussion on the need for the inclusion ofboth social and cognitive genres. The author successfully manages to guidereaders towards a general as well as comprehensive understanding of thenecessity to deploy the dual processing theory of language learning and use."Australian Review of Applied Linguistics
