Marking papers or teaching writing?
Horário e local
Sobre o evento
For quite a while, teaching writing meant asking students to write and then giving feedback on their composition, focused mostly on language use. This is what Harmer (2004) calls writing for learning. Teaching writing as a skill, or writing for writing, is not just about marking papers and giving feedback. It involves a series of steps that we will discuss in this workshop. Join us and learn effective strategies to focus on all the steps of the writing process.
