Nonfiction. Writing Reference. Language Arts. English as a Second Language. Theory has been used widely in the field of second language writing. Second language writing specialists--teachers, researchers, and administrators--have yet to have an open and sustained conversation about what theory is, how it works, and, more important, how to practice theory. PRACTICING THEORY IN SECOND LANGUAGE WRITING features fourteen essays by distinguished scholars in second language writing who explore various aspects of theoretical work that goes on in the field. Contributors include Dwight Atkinson, Diane Belcher, A. Suresh Canagarajah, Joan Carson, Deborah Crusan, Alister Cumming, Doug Flahive, Lynn M. Goldstein, Linda Harklau, John Hedgcock, Alan Hirvela, Ryuko Kubota, Paul Kei Matsuda, Lourdes Ortega, Dudley W. Reynolds, Tony Silva, Christine Tardy, Gwendolyn Williams, and Wei Zhu.
