Writing is fun and essential for everyday life, further study and for work success! Yet too many EAL and ELICOS students do not want to write because they see writing as boring or too challenging. Some students are even embarrassed to write in English because it shows up their English language weaknesses. This webinar explores easy-to-implement and creative writing activities for English language classrooms. The activities are suitable for all student proficiency levels. The webinar teaches techniques that help motivate even the least confident student to write and to take the risk of putting their ideas down on paper in English.

Learning Outcomes
  • Implement a wide range of writing activities that support even the least confident of students
  • Implement writing activities across a wide genre to help students take pride in their written work
  • Motivate students to view writing in English as fun and engaging.
