Having a plan for work will make the process go smoothly. Over the years, I have arrived at a time-saving, ten-step, simple strategy for this. The first five steps prepare the student to write and the remaining steps helps in writing the documented paper.This book goes through these steps giving some examples from online resources.

Even in this age of emails, texts, and tweets, there is an ongoing fascination with the simple act of putting pen to paper.

Many foreign language students encounter various difficulties when they are writing in the second language. They often struggle to transform their thought into words and put them on paper. Scaffolding strategies are effective tools for helping learners overcome their writing difficulties. Scaffolding is an interactive process in which a teacher or facilitator assists a learner to build a structure to contain and frame the new information. This book introduces a suggested program based on scaffolding strategies (graphic organizers, writing frames, and think sheets) to develop the writing skill of EFL students.

Writing is probably the most critical and challenging of the four language skills, even for native speakers of a language. Finding ways of helping language learners improve their writing ability, therefore, has always been a challenge for language teachers and researchers. Several attempts have already been made and a few techniques and activities have been proposed including controlled, guided, and free writing activities. This book compares the effectiveness of these activities on the cohesiveness of the argumentative writing of learners in an EFL context. It includes a theoretical review and an empirical analysis of the issue. This book may be useful for EFL learners as well as teachers who teach writing.
This book is a teacher in itself, intended to guide students of tertiary institutions including researchers on one easy way to write papers for submission to a journal. The language used is kept as simple as possible for easy understanding. The book gave a general background to writing scientific research papers, what to consider before starting to write a scientific paper, how to attract other readers to your work and it enables the reader to know the qualities the editors and referees will be looking for in a paper as part of its consideration for publication. It takes each of the main parts of a research paper and looks at what usually goes into them with practical examples. Writing research papers is too wide a field to be able to cover every aspect in one small book. Other books deal in greater detail with other areas of scientific writing especially its technical details. It is not meant to be complete but as a basic introduction. I hope that the book will assist many scientists as they undertake the difficult task of writing their papers for submission to International Scientific Journals. I am delighted to publish this book and make it available to the developing world.

Journal writing is a significant reflective vehicle which actively engages learners in processing of their learning experience in order to integrate it with existing knowledge and create new meaning. Hubbs and Brand (2005) describes reflective journal as “paper mirror”, and states, “As a glass mirror reflects a visual image, the paper mirror reflects students’ inner worlds and making of meaning” (p.70). Reflection through journal writing provides the opportunity for learners to return to their previous learning experience, and self-evaluate their learning capabilities which as a result may increase their self-efficacy.
