American English Webinar 4.4 - Building your Toolkit: Steps and Strategies for Teaching Academic Writing
- America House (map)
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.

The exhibition in America House displays major corruption schemes, as well as methods and approaches being used today around the world to fight corruption. It explains not only how corruption works, but also what is being done nationally and internationally to combat it.
The High Anti-Corruption Court of Ukraine, the Independent Investigative Body and the Independent Prosecutorial Body are the three institutions that have been created to combat high-level corruption in Ukraine. We’ve decided to invite representatives from each of these institutions as well as the independent media to discuss these questions and other work they do in their areas.
This week we aren't just a talking about corruption, we are actively making solutions to it. In the Advancing English Proficiency program we're acting out how we can respond to and avoid corruption and be transparent.
In this week's WE@AH speaking club, our theme is how we can respond to corruption and sharing how corruption has affected our lives (and how we can overcome those negative effects).
