I’m presenting a session to the Strasbourg chapter of TESOL France this month. If you are in the area, check out TESOL France and see details of the Strasbourg chapter on facebook.
Session: Using our learners’ authentic materials to design English language style guides: a learner-centred process writing project
Despite our learners writing the same English texts repeatedly, (e.g. emails, reports, essays, etc.) we often find they make the same errors time and time again. This can be both frustrating and time-consuming for teachers, so wouldn’t it be nice if there was some way to ease our correction burden whilst enhancing our learners’ autonomy?
This session will describe a learner-centred writing project for making English language style guides to develop our learners’ editing skills and reduce our correction load. It will also give you the opportunity to personalise the project for your own teaching context, and participants will be given handouts to carry out the project themselves.
Maybe see some of you there?
