D-Ped For Wednesday, 10/31

 

Hi D-Ped folks, this Wednesday, we’ll be discussing using digital and other pedagogical methods to work with ELL students and otherwise defined “at-risk” students in our classes.  We’ve provided some very short readings we’d like you to read before Wednesday.

 

Fair warning: we’d prefer that everyone be “devices down,” or not having phones, laptops, etc. out / open during the session.  This session will be discussion-heavy, and we’d like everyone to participate fully.

 

Here are the readings:

1. “CCCC Statement on Second-Language Writing and Writers (2009 Update)”  from /Second-Language Writing in the Composition Classroom”

2.  Barbara Tennenbaum’s “Colleges and Public Schools Forge New Partnerships”

3.  Barbara Tennenbaum’s “At-Risk Students Make Multimedia”
