Increasing Students' Awareness of Genre Through Text Transformation Exercises: An Old Classroom Activity Revisited.
Caudery, Tim
TESL-EJ, v3 n3 Sep 1998
Discusses how students learning to write in a second language need to be aware of text genres. Claims that transforming texts from one genre to another, using information and ideas in the source text to create new texts for different audiences and purposes, helps students to become aware of and take into account genre-related features such as writer/reader relationship, purpose of writing, and medium.
