WAC: Writing and ESL Students
Thursday, October 24, 2013
(CTLT) Philosophy Hall, 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Instructor: Sharon Utakis
Available Seats = 15 | Waiting List = 0
This intensive workshop is designed to help faculty in any discipline better understand ESL writing and ESL writers. The workshop presents a look into theories of communication across languages, followed by practical strategies for responding to student writing. For both English Language Learners and native speakers, grammar errors become more frequent as writers try to tackle unfamiliar topics and skills. A student who can write a personal narrative without trouble may struggle with an academic paper. Strategies to help students include scaffolding assignments, having students turn in and revise drafts of their work, and using minimal marking as a way of giving students constructive feedback.
