This one-day workshop takes research about Academic Language and makes it applicable to participants. Participants will define academic language and the role it plays in academic success. Participants will learn ways to develop academic language, such as using the Longman Dictionaries, and measure student progress in their academic language proficiency.
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
• Define academic language.
• Use strategies that encourage vocabulary and grammar development for academic success.
• Measure student progress in academic language proficiency.
