How to Uncover and Connect Arguments in an EAP Textbook

Sat, Nov 13, 11:25-11:50 Asia/Tokyo

Location: Room 17

The focus of this presentation is a framework for generating an answer to that question and the findings of its application to the 12 academic lectures in the popular EAP course book Contemporary Topics I. Being able to draw out and organize key elements of academic texts is a useful tool for finding previously unrecognized connections among academic content.
