Working with Multilingual Writers and Fostering Their Success  (back)
 
Description:


In this workshop, we’ll discuss strategies and approaches for helping multilingual students (for whom English is a second language) succeed with writing tasks in your discipline-specific courses. First, we’ll consider the various pedagogical philosophies about evaluating and assessing multilingual students’ written work, with a particular focus on the tension between upholding academic standards while allowing for some non-standard English. We’ll then articulate best practices for creating successful writing assignments and responding to students’ work, with an emphasis on how to determine errors to mark and how to formulate feedback that will help students revise. Finally, we’ll look at models of effective feedback and explore how online programs can help writers assess their own work and correct patterns of error.
