Scaffolding the Writing Process
Do your students (or you!) regard “process writing” as a remedial technique designed for struggling writers or low-level language students? This workshop takes participants through all stages of the writing process: brainstorming, organizing, drafting, editing, and rewriting, to demonstrate its usefulness and efficiency for any level of young adult or adult writer (including native speaker). We’ll try out a variety of practical and enjoyable classroom activities for each stage. Participants will look at activities that teach students to brainstorm creatively, make outlining easier for visually oriented learners, and set up a peer reviewing process that actually works.
Teaching Intensive Reading Skills
Teaching reading, especially in an academic context, can be challenging because students confuse “reading” with “literacy,” and assume that once they can decode words—and know enough vocabulary—they’ll be proficient readers. However, there are definite skills and strategies that successful readers use to read faster, understand better, and remember more easily. This session will focus on intensive reading skills for all stages of reading (pre-reading, during-reading, and post-reading) that can be taught and practiced to help students engage academic texts more successfully.
