"Studies on L2 writing tasks with child learners have broken through several barriers in the past few years: writing, which had been considered a solitary task, has been successfully implemented in collaboration; new and more comprehensive writing and feedback strategies have been implemented; task repetition has made its way from oral into writing tasks and, finally, research analyses of linguistic outcomes have been complemented by measures of task motivation. These studies and their findings demonstrate that child L2 writing constitutes a new field of inquiry that deserves to be addressed. This book includes a comprehensive analysis of the research conducted on L2 writing tasks with young learners, pinpoints the specificity of writing tasks for this population, identifies the research gaps that pave the way for future research and offers a guide for teachers who wish to implement writing tasks with young language learners"-- Provided by publisher
