          About This Event

          Summary

          Designing Writing Assignments for Non-native English Speaking Students

           

          Presenters:

          Estela Ene, Frank Smith

          Organizer:

          Terri Tarri

          When:

          10/30/2013 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

          Where:

          UL 1125M

          Do you have international students and other non-native speakers of English in your class? Do you wonder how you can design writing assignments that work for them as well as for your mainstream American students, without increasing your workload? In a university in which the international population is growing by leaps and bounds, faculty need to communicate assignment requirements and feedback in a way that speaks more clearly to this population. This workshop will define the difficulties non-native speakers of English may have with writing assignments and will illustrate, with examples of assignments and assessment tools, effective pedagogical solutions for designing and assessing writing assignments in any discipline or course level. Questions addressed in this workshop include:

          • What is good student writing, and what is truly important when evaluating a student’s paper?

          • What is difficult about designing assignments and evaluating the writing of students who are not native speakers of English?

          • Why do some students who have been studying English for a long time still make the same mistakes?

          • What pedagogical techniques can be implemented without spending significantly more time than with native English speaking students?

          The workshop will begin with a group reflection and discussion on perceptions of good writing and writing by non-native speakers of English. The presenters will involve the audience in analyses of student writing, writing assignments and evaluation criteria, alternating between small- and large-group discussion and presentation of content by the workshop leaders.
