Dr. Diane Belcher, Professor of Applied Linguistics at Georgia State University, will be speaking about "Connecting Writing with Reading and Speaking" on Monday, April 15 at 6 p.m. in Bryant Hall Auditorium. There will be reception prior to the lecture at 5:30 in the lobby.
Although many language programs take an “integrated skills” approach, writing pedagogy is still often conceptualized in isolation from other linguistic modalities. In this presentation, we will consider what theory and research can tell us about the advantages of various ways of connecting writing with reading and with oral communication. We will also look at how technology is providing not only new ways of making writing pedagogy more multimodal but also compelling reasons for doing so.
