Choosing appropriate writing activities that fit the objectives of the different phases of classroom tasks is essential when developing an effective lesson plan. Integrating Writing into Classroom Tasks is a 4-hour training workshop aimed at exploring how teachers can fit writing activities into second or foreign language classrooms tasks. We will first discuss the objectives of the phases within a classroom task and how these relate to writing strategies. Teachers will be guided through sample classroom tasks that make use of writing strategies in different ways. Following the sample tasks, teachers will work in groups to develop and explain their own classroom tasks and how writing strategies are used within the task.
An hour devoted to Q&A and networking will follow the workshop.
