To succeed in an academic environment, the ability to write well in English is an essential skill. The kinds of writing we ask of learners can vary from basic sentences at the lowest level, through to well-developed paragraphs, and all the way to an argumentative or persuasive essay at the highest levels.

No matter what level your students are, there are many things you can do as a teacher to support them and help them to succeed at academic writing. Using examples from Pathways Reading, Writing, and Critical Thinking, 3rd Edition, this webinar will look at practical tips and activities you can use to help your learners become better writers.
