Feedback form is now closed.
This presentation will discuss results and techniques of a small ‘n’ study run in Barstow, California. EL students were taught a new form of ‘funds of knowledge,’ i.e., how to rope certain cognitive-linguistic functions to produce coherent essays. Students increased their participation in other classes, and self-reported an increase in confidence for writing tasks. If time permits, there will be a demonstration of the most effective techniques.
