Language Classroom Content & Pedagogy College & University Education Practice-Oriented Short Workshop

Cancelled Using Intercultural Rhetoric in L2 Writing Classes

Sun, Nov 14, 12:45-13:10 Asia/Tokyo

Location: Room 19

Beyond grammar and vocabulary, a knowledge of intercultural rhetoric—how culture impacts communication—can help students create dynamic and powerful English texts. This workshop demonstrates how an awareness of cultural rhetorical models can help students produce meaningful texts in English. The workshop will draw from research in contrastive rhetoric and comparative linguistics and the presenter’s experience creating local English materials to provide a practical workshop for educators wishing to incorporate rhetorical studies in the classroom.
