Teaching Writing to English Learners: Successes and Challenges?

Hello colleagues, How do you approach the teaching of writing with English learners? Do you use journaling? Do students write narratives? Do they write in response to reading? How do you provide feedback to students on their writing?

What has worked well for you in teaching writing? What challenges have you faced? What questions do you have about teaching writing?

  • We are looking forward to a special LINCS event on teaching academic writing to English learners with guests Rebeca Fernandez, Joy Kreeft Peyton, and Kirsten Schaetzel. There will be a webinar on Friday, March 2 at 1:00 EST with a follow up discussion the following Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (March 5, 6 & 7).

I thought it would be great to engage in a discussion on the teaching of writing before our special event. Please share your practices and your questions!

Cheers, Susan Finn Miller
