You can find all the PowerPoints and handouts from my sessions at TESOL 2013 in Dallas  here. To recap, they were:

Teaching the Genres of Graduate Writing

with Christine Feak, University of Michigan

Writing is both essential and challenge for graduate students. This hands-on workshop demonstrates a toolbox of techniques for teaching the genres of graduate writing. Learn how your students can identify and analyze genres, build a mini corpus, and benefit from collaborative writing. Adaptations for participants’ teaching contexts will be discussed. (PowerPoint and references)

Grammar Choices that Matter in Academic Writing

coverIntroducing my textbook, Grammar Choices for Graduate and Professional Writers (University of Michigan Press, 2012). You can read more about the book here.

Roundtable Discussion: Supporting ESL Graduate Students

Notes from the discussion will be published here soon. We had a great discussion with colleagues from around the country and as far away as Ukraine. If you’d like to be part of the ongoing conversation about supporting (ESL) graduate students, please contact me; I’m going to set up a listserv.
