Toward an agenda for researching L2 writing and language learning
The educational context of development
Taking an educational linguistics perspective, the chapter highlights four areas that have the potential of illuminating possible effects of L2 writing for L2 learning. They address pressing issues by (a) theorizing writing as textual meaning-making; (b) emphasizing the pivotal role of the educational context, in its conceptualization and its practice; (c) affirming the long-term nature of developing literate forms of language use under a longitudinal optic; and d) privileging an extended, well-conceptualized curricular framework. The chapter suggests that these dimensions can yield important insights regarding the long-term development of both L2 composing and L2 abilities, especially when they are informed by a textually oriented theory of language, such as Systemic Functional Linguistics, and contemporary thinking in Complex Dynamic Systems Theory.
