Do you have non-native English speakers in your classes? Do you struggle with how to respond to their written work, or find that they misunderstand assignments or class readings? Do you wish you had more strategies for helping these students succeed with the material in your class? Sherry Warren will explain the difficulties that these students tend to encounter with their writing and reading assignments and simple strategies you can employ to minimize misunderstandings and maximize success. The session will also include helpful strategies for responding to written work and setting clear and manageable expectations for English language-heavy assignments. The session will conclude with a question and answer session focused on specific issues encountered by workshop participants.
