Most of the published works on English for academic purposes (EAP) theory, research, and practice have focused upon graduate (e.g., Swales, 1990) and, to a lesser extent, undergraduate (e.g., MacBeth, 2006) English as a second language (ESL)/English as a foreign language (EFL) or novice students and their literacies; however, as Charles (2013) notes,

the [EAP] term is very broad, covering, for example,….the requirements of native-speaker secondary school students who have read textbooks and write essays.
