IATEFL 2015: Beyond the Five-Paragraph Essay in EAP Writing

man 2015 logo - website use only

I’m off to Manchester! I’m giving a presentation entitled Beyond the Five-Paragraph Essay in EAP Writing  on Sunday.

My presentation will be part of a forum on EAP writing along with Niall Lloyd (Explicit SPRE Instruction–an aid to essay Writing) and Gusztav Demeter (Integrating Simulations in a Seminar-Based approach to EAP Writing) on Sunday, April 12, from 1710-1815.

Here’s the abstract:

The five-paragraph essay is omnipresent in English for Academic Purposes (EAP) coursebooks, despite corpus-based research that shows few university students are assigned essays of this type, but rather any number of genres. This presentation will look at alternatives to the five-paragraph essay in the teaching of EAP writing and propose practical teaching ideas to bring genre into the classroom.
