How To Write EAP Materials
Did you know that 56% of Internet content is in English and the next most common language is 6% (Russian)*? More and more students are studying English these days because it’s simply imperative for their studies. English for Academic Purposes (EAP) material aims to teach students not only the language they need for their studies, but also the key study skills. EAP is taught in many varied settings around the world, and generic published materials often do not meet the requirements of the individual institutions, meaning that teachers frequently have to supplement with their own materials.
EAP is a particularly challenging area to write for, requiring a fine balance of academic input and English language analysis. In this module, experienced EAP author and teacher Julie Moore unpacks the craft of writing materials that are adapted to your teaching style, your students and your teaching context, looking at each skill in turn, and providing the reader with a thought-provoking read at the same time as giving practical guidance for writing the best EAP materials you can.
This module forms part of the ELT Teacher 2 Writer training course. The training modules are designed to help you write better ELT materials, either for publication, or simply to improve the quality of your self-produced classroom materials.
