Abstract: 
The research paper is a complex writing task that students find boring and teachers find challenging to teach. How can writing teachers make it relevant to students? How do teachers engage students in writing? This training workshop will provide an opportunity for teachers to review concepts, issues, and practices in teaching writing. They will discuss ways to design learning tasks that have real-world significance for students, while offering them opportunities for problem-solving and critical thinking.
