Event description

Description

"Context is Key: Vocabulary and Grammar Instruction for Academic Reading and Writing" is the title of CATESOL Orange County Chapter's Fall 2017 Workshop. Attendees will gain insights from two featured speakers:

  • Jan Frodesen is the Director of English for Multilingual Students at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She has taught undergraduate writing courses in the UC system for over 30 years. She also teaches graduate writing and courses in the TESOL Minor at UCSB. She has co-authored several textbooks, most recently "Exploring Options in Academic Writing." Her recent research has focused on the applications of corpus linguistics to writing and pedagogical grammar.
  • Margi Wald teaches first year composition, reading, and grammar and vocabulary courses at the University of California, Berkeley. She directs UC Berkeley’s Summer English Language Studies Program and co-edits the CATESOL Journal. She recently co-authored "Exploring Options in Academic Writing: Effective Vocabulary and Grammar Use." Her research focuses on corpus-based material development and academic literacy development among ESL students.

How can teachers best assist their multilingual students in choosing appropriate language structures to shape, connect, and structure their ideas in academic writing? The presenters will discuss how effective word choice is dictated by a word’s grammatical and lexical context, how vocabulary choices often drive the use of grammar, and how students can use corpus-based resources such as learner dictionaries and concordancers to further develop their word knowledge and academic writing proficiency. They will also demonstrate how instructors can incorporate a range of vocabulary and grammar activities into their academic reading and writing courses. Activities will include awareness-raising “noticing” tasks as well as composing and editing practice.
