American English Webinar 4.4 - Building your Toolkit: Steps and Strategies for Teaching Academic Writing
Are you looking for ways to help your students move from just knowing about academic writing to actually being able to do academic writing? Are you wondering how to make your teaching more interactive? Are you interested in learning about ways to reflect on your own teaching of writing and what students are learning? This webinar will provide participants with five specific steps and several strategies they can use in teaching academic writing in their own contexts. Strategies will include how to develop and organize discovery activities, how to run effective peer review sessions, how to use models of academic writing in class, how to help students read with a purpose, and how to use rubrics effectively.
