'At last, there is a textbook which is aimed at high-intermediate to advanced ESL/EFL students to assist them to write convincing paragraphs and academic essays with greater fluency. Write to be Read is based on a highly successful combination of methodologies of process writing, product writing and the whole language approach.' VATME Newsletter, No 73, 1997 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
With an ever-increasing number of writing manuals available for ESL/EFL learners, teachers should take care in matching student abilities and learning styles to a text. Additionally, an instructor must consider the goals and objectives of the course in which the text will be used. Write to be Read offers students an opportunity to write on numerous interesting topics in the form of reflective essays, persuasive essays, and arguments. Smalzer indicates that his text is appropriate for high-intermediate to advanced learners. Additionally, students will require some previous experience in English academic writing because of the variety of exercises offered in the development of this skill. Divided into eight chapters, the text asks the student to consider a different theme in each. For example, Chapter 1, "Birth Order," deals with an individual's place in his or her family. Each chapter contains a main reading, an emphasis on specific writing skills, and a core writing assignment. All of this is stated in the Table of Contents, yet Smalzer fails to adequately outline every part of each chapter in the contents. This makes the value of the text difficult to recognize at first glance. Each chapter has five subdivisions that demonstrate a base in process writing and whole language techniques. Part One of each chapter, "Getting a Grip on the Topic," provides an introduction to the main reading through reflection on previous experience, notes on the main reading, and an opportunity for discussion. A glossary of key terms is also included. This helps ESL/EFL learners build schemata along with their peers, a practice that is often necessary for second language learners.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
THIS REVIEW REFERS TO THE STUDENT TEXT: I purchased this text for my advanced level class and was a little hesitant at first because it is so different than any other text I've used thus far. After finishing the first 2 chapters and having a pretty good feel about the pacing and objectives, I am thoroughly pleased with this book. My students are already writing stronger paragraphs! I highly recommend this interesting and well designed text.

TEACHER MANUAL: I am glad I purchased the teacher manual for a couple of reasons. First, it has answers to many of the exercises. Second, it has lots of ideas in the beginning for structuring a class using this as its core text. However, I have only taught an Advanced level writing class twice before, so my experience is limited. I would say if you have more experience teaching this topic at this level, the teacher manual is pretty basic and you could probably do without it.

A YEAR LATER: I was amazed at the end of the year at the quality of essays my students produced after completing this book. I supplemented the text some with a few (very few) grammar activities and another writing book that had more practice with discrete skills like writing thesis statements and writing transitional sentences. In May, when the final essay was submitted I sat at my desk reading the work of my students and was so pleased at how well they did... even the first draft. Now, in the 2nd year of using Write to be Read, I am confident, as are my new students, in how much progress will be made this year. Good book.
