Teacher Talking Time 07: Discourse Approaches to Teaching EAP (2)

  • Language Studies International Toronto 1055 Yonge Street Toronto, ON, M4W 2L2 Canada (map)

English for Academic Purposes has blossomed into a substantial sub-field in our industry, yet there is still a lack of many practical resources for instructors to help get their students where they need to be. Further, we've found that the majority of resources that are out there don't help students navigate through discourse - they are mainly at sentence level. This affects all four skills, but when students are unable to process texts and identify patterns therein, their production also has similar pitfalls.

For this reason, we've dedicated two Teacher Talking Time events to just that: strategies to help your students achieve their goals.

The break-down is as follows:

Oct 3: In Writing

Nov 7: in Speaking

Come prepared to learn, reflect, participate, and connect.

The session runs from 5:30 to 7:00, with a post-session analysis and discussion at a local pub afterwards.

About Teacher Talking Time:

Teacher Talking Time is Learn YOUR English's teacher education series. We host 8-10 informal events annually with the aim of developing a community of teachers who love to learn and develop together. Our vision at LYE is to change how professional development is conducted in our industry, and this is one of the ways we hope to achieve that. Each session it three-pronged: theory, activities, and design/application.
