Derewianka, Beverly M., 2007, Using Appraisal Theory to Track Interpersonal Development in Adolescent Academic Writing, in A. McCabe, M. O'Donnell & R. Whittaker (eds.), Advances in Language and Education, London: Continuum, 142-165.
In this chapter, we will look at four texts indicative of different stages of development in students' academic writing. The first three are from the early, middle and later years of secondary school. A fourth text, from the first year of tertiary education, has been included to provide an indication of where students still need to develop interpersonally when writing for an academic audience.
