 Please join the LINCS Community on Friday, December 7, 2018 at 1:00pm ET for “Writing as a Basis for Reading and so Much More.” This important webinar is the third in the Teaching Academic Writing to English Learners series, but all can attend.

Dr. Rebeca Fernandez, an assistant professor at Davidson College, will draw on 25 years of experience in the field of language and literacy in her presentation. Participants will discover new and effective strategies to integrate writing with reading activities, as well as listening and speaking, to support English learners to enhance their academic language skills. Participants will be able to:

  • Explain how writing contributes to second language acquisition;
  • Describe effective strategies for teaching writing to support reading and learning;
  • Apply instructional strategies that attend to grammar, vocabulary, and other skills (listening, speaking) during writing instruction; and
  • Design writing and reading lessons that motivate students at all levels to write.
