Linking Literacies

Perspectives on L2 Reading-Writing Connections
Diane Belcher and Alan Hirvela, Editors


Linking Literacies provides the most up to date theoretical overview of the connection between reading and writing in second language acquisition. Belcher and Hirvela have brought together the definitive collection of developments in reading-writing relations research and pedagogy. Papers are organized into these parts:

  • Grounding Practice: Theory, Research, and History
  • In the Classroom: Teaching Reading as Writing and Writing as Reading
  • (E)Merging Literacies and the Challenge of Textual Ownership
  • Technology-Assisted Reading and Writing.

In addition to examining the ways in which L1 influences have affected the development of L2 reading-writing theory and pedagogy, Linking Literacies looks at how L2 reading-writing scholarship has created an identity separate of an L1 framework. Linking Literacies examines a broad range of questions and concerns within the structure of L2 reading-writing connections and L2 academic literacy through discussions of theory, research, and pedagogy.
