Workshop: Engage Your Students and Build Oral Proficiency Through the Written Communication Mode

Wednesday, August 01, 2018 -
10:00 to 16:00
University of Texas at Austin CLA 1.302B
Rose Potter (The University of Texas at Austin)
Julia Haug (The University of Texas at Austin)

We know that writing builds communicative skills as it develops critical and analytical thinking. Why then, do we avoid assigning that writing task? Do we fear a student rebellion? Dread the mountain of resulting papers to grade? Honestly, have we been taught to effectively teach, or assess, writing?  Probably not. Master English Language Arts teacher and UT clinical professor, Julia Haug joins forces with Rose Potter to integrate ELA planning and assessment strategies into a cross-curricular unit of study that will help cultivate your students’ communication skills in all three modes as well as their creativity, problem solving and entrepreneurship skills. Leave this workshop with lesson and assessment ideas that can be incorporated into all levels of LOTE learning.
