What Worked

A short time ago, we asked faculty members from our member colleges...

Teaching Writing to Multi-lingual Inter-national Students

(1) Supporting multilingual inter-national students requires faculty development; (2) good pedagogy for multilingual international students is good pedagogy for all students; and, (3) faculty across the disciplines must be committed to inclusive pedagogy that contributes to a sense of belonging rather than marginalization.

Instructor & Peer Feedback

The premise of this module is that all writers benefit from receiving feed-back on their written work at multiple stages and in multiple forms.

Vocabulary Develop-ment & Mini-Grammar Lessons

The premise of this module is that students can produce more intentional writing if faculty devote time and attention in class to the words, structures, and usage of their disciplines.

Assign-ment Design & Scaffolding

The premise of this module is that writing mentorship is a successful way to lead multilingual writers to fulfill the critical thinking expectations professors have for students.

Essay Structure & Thesis Develop-ment

The premise of this module is that all writers – especially multilingual writers – benefit from explicit instruction in the different types of writing that is expected at a college level.
