I’m a Chinese. I’m studying the comparison of writing teaching between Chinese and English. I need materials about teaching aim, teaching process and some typical excellent teaching methods of English writing (as mother tongue) during the recent ten years (academic articles are the best) in US, UK or Canada. It’s very difficult for me to look for these myself. So I need your help very much!
How or where can I find the materials(I can’t go abroad myself)? Or if you can find those materials, please tell me. My E-mail is: ; or Thanks a lot !!!
Another thing, how to write the envelope address of Lincoln Public Senior Middle School in San Francisco in California, especially the postcode and the street?
If you need materials about Chinese teaching, I will try my best to help you.

It is often useful to go to course website and see what they are teaching. Just in case you can't find one, I copied some material from a course on teaching writing. This is the kind of thing you will find and it gives you a good idea of what is important in teaching writing.
