Prof Dev Meeting/Workshop Interest Group (IG) Event
Featuring Stephen Krashen and Nooshan Ashtari
We present research, our own experiences, and student reactions to reading and writing research that support these hypotheses: Academic language competence does not come from writing or study. It comes from reading texts that we choose to read that are of great personal interest. A great deal of the ability to solve academic problems comes from writing, especially the use of revision.
Stephen Krashen is Professor Emeritus, University of Southern California. He is active in language acquisition, bilingual education, literacy and heritage language development. Many of his books and papers are available for free download at www.sdkrashen.com. He invites you to follow him on twitter (skrashen).
