Teaching Writing | TESL.X310


This course addresses several methods for helping ESL students improve their writing in English. Course activities emphasize adapting and developing writing tasks to fit the learners' needs as well as developing effective techniques for responding to students' writing.

Topics include:

  • Process vs. product approach to writing
  • Teaching beginners
  • Creating writing tasks for different purposes
  • Planning a writing lesson
  • Responding to students' writing (including content, organization, and grammar)
  • Evaluating student writing (e.g., using rubrics, checklists)

Using an interactive and a reflective approach, participants will explore these topics as they engage in experiential tasks and assigned readings. Besides responding to what their peers have said in class, participants will collaborate on a Web research assignment as well as complete an independent study project.
