This is Bill Grabe's home page. I am Professor of English and Chair of the English Department at Northern Arizona University.  I am interested in research on issues in L2 reading, writing, and literacy.  I am also interested in written discourse analysis, content-based language instruction, teacher development, and the disciplinary nature of applied linguistics.
