Framework First: Introducing Academic Writing and Critical Thinking

Richard Harrison

Canford Publishing

ISBN: 978-1-910-43109-2

Do you teach low level students who need to make a start with academic writing? Framework First, a new 120-page coursebook, could help. The eight units cover writing skills, critical thinking, language and vocabulary. The critical thinking strand is particularly impressive and provides a solid introduction for low level students (IELTS 4.0 to 5.0 or CEFR A2 to B1) to important concepts like using evidence, checking facts and avoiding ‘lazy thinking’. The frameworks themselves scaffold students’ writing, encouraging them to reflect on a topic, organise their ideas and finally, draft short texts. Includes sound advice on academic style. Worth investigation.
