Does anyone have any good suggestions for titles dealing with teaching academic writing? Both theoretical and more practical approaches would be much appreciated. The course will be focusing on teachers presenting their classroom research findings as part of the ICELT. I'm thinking along the lines of Swales along with a healthy dose of academic vocabulary work, so specific titles you might recommend regarding academic vocabulary would also be welcome.
Thanks!

Sorry, I missed posting the beginning. This is a course given by Natasha Artemeva at Carleton University this year. I took the course in 2000 and had many of the same papers. We also used "Academic Writing: An Introduction by
Janet Giltrow, Daniel Burgoyne , Richard Gooding, Marlene Sawatsky

We did the exercises in the book but used writing from our own fields to make it more relevant rather than the writing in the book.

I personally like anything by Beverly Deriwianka from Australia for learning and teaching to write.
