How does speaking affect writing in a second language? Research suggests that connecting speaking and writing in the second language classroom can support and enhance students' development of these skills. This volume presents the most current insights from research and theory on the numerous ways in which second language speaking and writing can interact and influence each other.Contributors to this collection not only report on recent research and theoretical developments but also on state-of-the-art pedagogical practices linking oracy and literacy.Although research and theory are informed by practice throughout the text's four parts, the thematic organization proceeds from more theoretical and research-oriented issues to more classroom-based perspectives. A wide array of theoretical and classroom-oriented topics is offered, ranging from sociocultural and second-language acquisition theory to classroom concordancing programs.
