CATESOL - Event Information

Event Name:Developing Academic Competence (RW-IG)
Event Type(s):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 He invites you to follow him on twitter (skrashen). 

Nooshan Ashtari has spent the last two decades teaching languages, graduate/undergraduate courses, and conducting research in various countries around the world. She currently teaches in the MAT-TESOL program at the University of Southern California training new generations of language educators
