"Designing Tasks, Prompts, and Feedback Protocols for L2 Writing"
June 18, 2018
The Pennsylvania State University - University Park campus
Building: TBA
Presenter: Susan Strauss (Penn State)

This workshop provides hands-on interactive activities for teachers to use in guiding L2 students to take more risks in their writing and to venture out beyond the comfort of convention, structure, and basic grammatical rules. To this end, we explore the importance of writing task development, writing prompt design, and instructor/peer feedback. Using actual L2 writing samples and multi-modal materials for teaching and thinking, participants will engage in activities that zero-in on all three areas of writing pedagogy.
