Academic English: What Can We Do?
Johns, Ann M.
Journal of Intensive English Studies, v6 p61-69 Fall 1992
Teachers of academic English cannot teach content directly, prepare students for all academic tasks, eradicate error, or teach the full range of academic vocabulary. However, they can teach task and genre awareness, encourage use of all skills and higher-order thinking, require exploitation of resources, and encourage self-evaluation. (11 references) (MSE)
