Teaching Academic Writing consists of ten teaching-focused chapters offering solutions to the issues confronting the teacher of academic writing. The contributors give practical advice about how to teach an academic writing class, offer classroom solutions for the novice teacher, and discuss the place of feedback and assessment. The chapters also examine the use of different media in the academic writing classroom, the problem of plagiarism, and background issues affecting students' ability to learn.
