Abstract:

English writing is acknowledged as an essential skill for critical thinking, learning, and expression, and most EFL learners find themselves struggling when writing in English due to a lack of writing skills, content knowledge, writing strategies, intrinsic motivation, and fluency development practice. This edited volume, covering innovative approaches such as e-learning, strategy-based instruction, metacognitive training, a minimal grammar approach, writing assessment, and a genre-based approach, aims to innovate writing instruction in Chinese speaking regions, which has traditionally been characterized by rigid, teacher-centered, test-oriented approaches. We aim for this edited volume to provide theoretical underpinnings as well as contemporary practical advice related to EFL writing instruction for Chinese speakers.
