Mindestens ein Sechstel aller Heranwachsenden zählt zur Risikogruppe der lese- und schreibschwachen Schüler. Vom Ideal des selbstregulierten Lesens und Schreibens sind sie oft weit entfernt. Das macht die Vermittlung von Lerninhalten über Sachtexte ausgesprochen schwierig, auf die aber alle Fächer zurückgreifen. Das Buch weist vor diesem Problemhintergrund neue didaktische Wege zur besseren Verknüpfung von Fachunterricht und Schriftinstruktion. Im Mittelpunkt steht dabei, wie sich die Vermittlung von Lese- und Schreibstrategien als Lernwerkzeuge in den Unterricht integrieren lässt. Das Buch liefert zunächst Basisinformationen zu den lese- und schreibschwachen Schülern und dem auf sie zugeschnittenen Unterricht. Darauf aufbauend werden neun praxiserprobte, in ihrer Wirksamkeit bestätigte Ansätze, Konzepte und Maßnahmen für die Vermittlung von Schreib- und Lesestrategien bei den Schülern beschrieben. Lehrkräfte lernen hier an zahlreichen praktischen Unterrichtsbeispielen, wie sie mit gezielter Strategieinstruktion ihren Schülern helfen können, Textinhalte besser zu verstehen und eigene Gedanken besser in Schriftform zu bringen. Das Zusatzmaterial enthält eine überarbeitete Fassung der Kopiervorlagen des Buches zum Ausdrucken.

Writing matters, and so does research into real-life writing. The shift from an industrial to an information society has increased the importance of writing and text production in education, in everyday life and in more and more professions in the fields of economics and politics, science and technology, culture and media. Through writing, we build up organizations and social networks, develop projects, inform colleagues and customers, and generate the basis for decisions. The quality of writing is decisive for social resonance and professional success. This ubiquitous real-life writing is what the present handbook is about. The de Gruyter Handbook of Writing and Text Production brings together and systematizes state-of-the-art research. The volume contains five sections, focussing on (I) the theory and methodology of writing and text production research, as well as on problem-oriented and problem-solving approaches related to (II) authors, (III) modes and media, (IV) genres, and (V) domains of writing and text production. Throughout the 21 chapters, exemplary research projects illustrate the theoretical perspectives from globally relevant research spaces and traditions. Both established and future scholars can benefit from the handbook’s fresh approach to writing in the context of multimodal, multi-semiotic text production.

The ECML's Languages for social cohesion programme (2004-2007) involved approximately 4500 language professionals from Europe and beyond. This publication focuses on key developments in language education promoted through the work of the European Centre for Modern Languages of the Council of Europe (ECML). It serves three main functions. Firstly, it summarises the ECML's contributions to fostering linguistic and cultural diversity in European societies. Secondly, it contains the proceedings of the ECML Conference, held in September 2007 at the University of Graz, to communicate the results of this programme to the wider public. Thirdly, it provides a preview of the projects which comprise the next programme of the ECML (2008-2011): 'Empowering language professionals: competences - networks - impact - quality'. In this way the publication both provides an overview of current issues and trends in European language teaching and indicates perspectives for the future.
