This course is an introduction to the principles of “good writing” and how professional writers achieve it. Genre Writing (GW) takes a genre-based approach to writing, so you will learn how to compose short but complex texts for different audiences and purposes and within different genres.
GW has been specially designed for intermediate (B1–B2) English language learners and to better prepare EFL teachers and materials developers to meet these three professional writing demands:
- adapting coursebook reading passages for more effective classroom use.
- creating reading passages from scratch (e.g., for use in self-designed materials).
- evaluating and editing reading passages and providing feedback to authors (e.g., in the role of “editor” or “project manager” in a publishing company)
