Better Writing Through Editing: Student Text (esl Domestic) by Jan Peterson; Stacy Hagen
9780070498853 Better Writing Through Editing teaches intermediate students how to edit their own writing for correct sentence structure, grammar, punctuation, and expression. Using a systematic approach for studying writing and editing problems, students discover their individual strengths and weaknesses and are encouraged to monitor their own progress. Part 1, Getting Started, begins with a diagnostic self-assessment to determine each students' awareness of typical ESL/EFL editing problems. Students also learn an editing system that they can use to evaluate their own writing. Part 2, Writing Focus, provides practice with a variety of English sentence types and features writing assignments based on a chapter theme and a rhetorical focus. Part 3, Editing Focus, provides clear and simple explanations of typical ESL/EFL editing problems and contains hundreds of practice exercises. The chapters in the Editing Focus section can be done in any order, thus allowing a teacher to customize learning while simultaneously completing the Writing Focus chapters.
