Reading and esl writers

John R. Edlund

Abstract


Whether the student population consists of basic writers, non-native speakers, or well-prepared freshmen and whether the primary goal of the class is improvement in writing ability, language and vocabulary acquisition, or critical thinking skills, there is considerable evidence that substantial amounts of reading arc an essential component of the course (See Krashen Writing: Research, Theory and Applications for
a summary). This is especially true in the ESL composition class, where language acquisition is still a major factor in the student's success as a writer.
