Simulation-Based L2 Writing Instruction: Enhancement through Genre Analysis
Simulation & Gaming Volume 38, Number 1, ISSN 1046-8781
Researchers have highlighted various benefits of the simulation-based approach to second language (L2) writing instruction. In this article, the author argues, with specific pedagogical scenarios, that an explicit focus on genre and genre analysis in simulation-based L2 writing instruction can further enhance learners' reading of content materials, heighten students' awareness of discipline-specific generic features, and develop their discourse competence and writing accuracy.
