Okayama JALT:

Teaching a Process Approach to Paragraph Writing

Date: Saturday, July 24th, 2010 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Peter Neff

Academic writing skills can be one of the most challenging yet rewarding skills to teach to EFL learners. This presentation will focus on ways to guide students through the stages of writing a clear, cohesive, and well-organized paragraph knowledge which they can also utilize for later essay writing. Additionally, attention will be given to the background and attributes of the process approach as well as various methods of carrying out peer review activities. Real writing samples will be used to supplement the description.
