Review of Hyland, Ken (2002) Teaching And Researching Writing
This work appears in the Applied Linguistics in Action Series, edited by Christopher Candlin and David Hall. So far, the series includes six Teaching and Researching titles – apart from Writing, there are books on Reading, Lexicography, Translation, Motivation and Autonomy in Language Learning – and aims to introduce readers to the research in the field and to “provide [them] with the tools they need to carry out their own practice related research” (o.c.: viii). This aim is mirrored in the overall structure of the books, which work their way through four stages: an analysis of the field, a survey of the different types of research, a number of research suggestions and an introduction to research resources.
