This book bridges the gap between theory and practice in the teaching of academic writing within English for Academic Purposes (EAP). Reviewing existing research on the language of academic writing and drawing respective pedagogical implications, the book focuses on the key issues of theoretical frameworks relevant to teaching academic writing, core written academic genres, the integration of language and content, textual organization and interaction, and formative feedback on writing. The author richly illustrates its key themes with authentic examples from student and expert writing, points out common myths and controversies in the teaching of academic writing, and identifies gaps in current research. To demonstrate how theoretical knowledge on academic writing can be applied in teaching practice, Milada Walkov provides examples of suggested teaching activities for a variety of learner levels and contexts. The book serves as a comprehensive yet accessible resource for both novice and experienced EAP practitioners involved in the teaching and scholarship of academic writing.
