Second Language Writing

This module explores current research in second language writing and encompasses the investigation of both processes and products of writing. The module will examine theories in writing (including L1 theories) and the role theories and models plays in second language writing research. The topics addressed will include the cognitive processes in writing, the distribution of processes on writing performance, individual differences in writing (for examples, self-efficacy beliefs, motivation, and strategies), the methodology and tools researchers use to investigate the processes in writing, and the assessment of written texts.
