Genre Pedagogy Across the Curriculum

ID: 1769 - View Book Page - Edit In OJS

This volume provides the most recent scholarship using a theory of genre emerging from Systemic Functional Linguistics. It describes both theoretical and practical applications of a language-based curriculum from elementary through to university level within a U.S. context. While there are other genre-based pedagogies in the U.S., SFL-based genre pedagogies illuminate the importance of language and linguistic choice within the curriculum, aiming to make these choices explicitly understood by scholars, teachers and students. Each chapter shows how this pedagogy can be adapted and used across many different disciplines and student age groups.

This volume will be of interest to postgraduate students and scholars of functional linguistics, discourse analysis, educational linguistics, genre studies and writing theory and pedagogy.
