Enhancing L2 Reading and Writing Instruction with Genre-Based Tools

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

As literacy practices in school, the workplace, and social media have rapidly evolved, L2 literacy educators have increasingly recognized the need to prepare learners to navigate dynamic print and digital literacies. At the same time, L2 educators face ongoing pressure to equip ELLs with the reading and composing skills necessary for mastering traditional, school-based genres. This workshop will acquaint participants with classroom materials and tasks designed to cultivate ELLs’ strategies for identifying, analyzing, and reproducing divergent high- and low-stakes genres in diverse literate environments. Session activities will feature tools for facilitating intensive reading instruction, maximizing reading-writing connections, vocabulary building, and guiding the production of authentic print and digital texts. Following a selection of collaborative tasks, participants will be invited to share ideas for adapting genre- based tools for effective reading and writing instruction in their settings.
