The final resource to help me upgrade my ELL Writer’s Workshop has arrived
The first quarter has been spent on short, personal narratives and poems. We will now focus on the more formal persuasive writing, and I noticed that Chapter 4 (p.97) is devoted to those writing moves.
I look forward to providing feedback other than “How can you develop this idea?”
All of a sudden the red tomato kitchen timer has become ubiquitous.
At the moment I am in the middle of Dave Stuart’s engaging workshop – Teaching with Articles (more of that in the next post). One of the issues Dave addresses is grading, of course. His #1 advice is to use the pomodoro technique.
I will discuss with my students how they can apply these tips to their study habits. The video pairs very well with the Learning How to Learn course I blogged about a couple of weeks ago.
