Developing Reading and Speaking Assignments for Your Classes

Presented By: Suzanne Lane, PhD, Director, Writing Across the Curriculum, MIT

Based on Suzanne Lane’s Workshops on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning, participants develop a sequencing and scaffolding structure for their reading and speaking assignments in their class in exchange with other workshop participants and Suzanne Lane. Participants should bring their syllabi and have a solid idea of the structure of the class, planned readings, and what potential assignments are. During the workshop participants will develop these assignment ideas into a coherent and properly sequenced structure.

Participation in this workshop is limited to registered participants only. All registered participants are required to attend the entire workshop.

Lunch will be provided at 12:30pm and refreshments will be available in the afternoon. If you have any specific dietary needs, please do let us know.

Printouts of presentation slides are available upon request.
