A colleague and I have just been accepted to present a paper on using SFL and genre to teach writing in the college classroom. We will be presenting to the Midwestern Modern Language Association Permanent Session on Teaching Writing in College this year. It will be my first time actually reading rather than presenting a paper. Any tips for the switch in format?
Due to time constraints, I did not get very far in the poetry challenge. Maybe next year!
I recently presented at the OKI Regional TESOL Conference in Cincinnati with my colleague Marshall Klassen. Our presentation was on the new Common Core State Standards and ESL writing.
I am working on multiple research projects right now, hoping to put together two manuscripts for publication this summer, and looking forward to possibly presenting at MMLA.
Lastly, I just started work as a Content Developer for Purdue’s OWL! Looking forward to developing more language-centered content for the ESL section on writing for North American academic audiences.
I plan to keep this space updated each month to keep information up-to-date on my professional and academic work. Also feel free to connect with me at LinkedIn.
