About this book

First-Year Writing describes significant language patterns in college writing today, how they are different from expert academic writing, and how to inform teaching and assessment with corpus-based linguistic and rhetorical genre analysis.

Reviews

“This book does a good job of presenting the impetus for the study, explaining why so few studies of this nature exist, detailing the findings, and suggesting ways in which the results can inform pedagogy. … will be an interesting and informative read for those who work with FY students in the post-secondary classroom and in support services, such as writing centres. … this reviewer believes that this study makes genuine contributions to the body of knowledge on FY writing.” (Tina Beynen, The Linguist List, linguistlist.org, June, 2016)
