This book reports on three research studies. Study 1, which investigated the effects of peer-editing on students’ revised and new essays, revealed that students did not benefit from peer feedback in their revised drafts but improved the quality of their new essays. Study 2 examined the reasons for students’ failure to benefit from their peers’ feedback and found the answer in students’ culture of learning. Study 3 employed experimental and control groups to test students’ ability to correct specific language errors. Compared to the control group who self-edited their essays, the experimental group, who received peer feedback, significantly improved their writing in revised drafts and in new essays. Also, the experimental group significantly reduced rule-based language errors in revised drafts but not in new essays. However, errors that are not rule-based were not significantly reduced in revised drafts or in new essays. Demonstrating the importance of peer interaction in developing students’ writing skills, this work contributes to SLA research by grounding its findings in a socio-cognitive theoretical framework. It also has important pedagogical implications for teachers.
Julian Barnes began writing about art with a chapter on Gericault's "The Raft of the Medusa" in his 1989 novel "A History of the World in 10.5 Chapters". Since then he has written a series of remarkable essays, chiefly about French artists, which trace the story of how art made its way from Romanticism to Realism and into Modernism. Fully illustrated in colour throughout, "Keeping an Eye Open" contains Barnes’ essays on Gericault, Delacroix, Courbet, Manet, Fantin-Latour, Cezanne, Degas, Redon, Bonnard, Vuillard, Vallotton, Braque, Magritte, Oldenburg, Howard Hodgkin and Lucian Freud.
Writing & Materiality in China – Essays in Honor of Patrick Hanan
This study examines the use of cohesive devices and cohesive chains in the argumentative essays by Polish undergraduates majoring in English, using both quantitative and qualitative analysis. The analysis is based on the Halliday and Hasan (1976) framework on cohesion in texts. The book is divided into three chapters: two concerned with a discussion of the necessary theory of cohesion in texts and argumentative writing, and the third one is focused on the application of the theory- the analysis of essays. The analysis includes the distribution of cohesive ties and chains, some problems with using cohesive ties, and a comparative study of essays as regards the use of cohesive devices in two proficiency levels and in relation to writing quality. This study sheds some light on the concept of cohesion in written texts and how EFL students use cohesive features to express meanings in their writing.
In his essays, Orwell elevated political writing to the level of art, and his motivating ideas-his desire for social justice, his belief in universal freedom and equality, and his concern for truth in language - are as enduringly relevant now, a hundred years after his birth, as ever.

Stylish lettering has always been of great importance within the graffiti and street art movements. Over the last 25 years many artists have pushed the practice into a powerful stylized calligraphy. The Art of Writing Your name follows the arc of this movement from its earliest practitioners, like Chaz Bojorquez to more recent adopters, such as Usugrow, profiling 35 of the worlds hottest urban calligraphers along the way. Niels SHOW Meulman is a foundational artist in the movement, but others such as Cryptik, JonOne, LAtlas, SABER, Faust, and Vincent Abadie Hafez also light the way. Graffiti fanatics, hand lettering fans, street art junkies, calligraphy lovers, and type enthusiasts all have something to learn from this fascinating tome. Christian Hundertmark, editor of the ongoing Art of Rebellion series co-authored The Art of Writing Your Name along with Patrick Hartl, creating a comprehensive sourcebook in the process.
Some critics view the postwar avant-garde as the empty recycling of forms and strategies from the first two decades of the twentieth century. Others view it, more positively, as a new articulation of the specific conditions of cultural production in the postwar period. Benjamin Buchloh, one of the most insightful art critics and theoreticians of recent decades, argues for a dialectical approach to these positions.This collection contains eighteen essays written by Buchloh over the last twenty years. Each looks at a single artist within the framework of specific theoretical and historical questions. The art movements covered include Nouveau Realisme in France (Arman, Yves Klein, Jacques de la Villegle) art in postwar Germany (Joseph Beuys, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter), American Fluxus and pop art (Robert Watts and Andy Warhol), minimalism and postminimal art (Michael Asher and Richard Serra), and European and American conceptual art (Daniel Buren, Dan Graham). Buchloh addresses some artists in terms of their oppositional approaches to language and painting, for example, Nancy Spero and Lawrence Weiner. About others, he asks more general questions concerning the development of models of institutional critique (Hans Haacke) and the theorization of the museum (Marcel Broodthaers); or he addresses the formation of historical memory in postconceptual art (James Coleman).One of the book's strengths is its systematic, interconnected account of the key issues of American and European artistic practice during two decades of postwar art. Another is Buchloh's method, which integrates formalist and socio-historical approaches specific to each subject.
Writing can be an amazing world to explore. From realistic fiction to mysteries to sci-fi to poetry, your writing is only limited by your imagination. Keep in mind that writing is a lot more than putting pen to paper: it takes reading, research, thinking, and revision. While not all writing methods work for everyone, tips in this book both in writing Letters and Essays should get you started on your path to writing. In this book, the first chapter gives insights towards teaching writing skill. Chapter two explains about techniques for either starting writing or teaching different types of writing. Chapter three is about different types of letters.
Certainly one good way to learn how to write is to follow the example of those who can write well. “You have to read, read, and read” says Walter Ong (1979, as cited in Eschholz, 1980, p. 5). “There is no way to write unless you read, and read a lot” (p. 12). Eschholz (1980) states that in reading, writers see the printed words, the shape and order of sentences, and the texture of paragraphs. He believes that the prose model approach to the teaching of writing holds that writers can develop and improve their writing skills through directed reading. Ferris and Hedgcock (1998, as cited in Abe, 2008) argue that L2 writers have to be exposed to various types of reading material since it is difficult to acquire L2 writing skills by only writing. Similarly, Eschholz (1980) points out that what L2 learners write depends on what they read and they can improve their L2 writing skills by reading. He also argues that given the opportunities to learn rhetorical modes, L2 learners can eventually apply their knowledge about those modes to their writing. . Thus, some researchers believe by model essays, readers can pay attention to the various aspects of TL (e.g., Hyland, 2003; ; Hanaoka, 2007).
