I was just catching up on my reading at the OUP ELT Global Blog when I came across an interesting primer for an upcoming webinar titled, “It’s Hard Enough to Find Enough Class Time for Writing”, the third in their Solutions Writing Challenge.
[Writing lessons] get treated like an extra add-on – only to be brought out when all other lessons have been completed. A shame though, don’t you think? We talk about preparing our students for the world of the 21st century in which digital literacy is key, but we find it challenging to allow time for doing those writing lessons.
South African freelance teacher Elna Coetzer will be describing some of her strategies and ideas for teaching writing in the classroom. Although it seems to be focused on the OUP textbook Solutions, I’m sure it will be full of insights for anyone in the business.
The webinar takes place on April 22nd, 2015, and then again on the 24th. You can sign up for it at the OUP registration page.
