Teacher Talk Sessions

With this series, we invite Metro faculty members from across the disciplines to join us for open-ended, collegial conversations about various aspects of teaching writing.

CONVERSATIONAL ENGLISH CIRCLES  

Speaking and listening are closely correlated with reading and writing, both in the way that we learn, and in the way we relate to others. Conversational English Circles will provide English Language Learners with opportunities for language practice in a relaxed, comfortable setting. Practicing listening and speaking skills will help students be more engaged in their experience at MCC. Students will build confidence and feel more fluent when participating in class discussions, asking questions, and writing essays. The Conversational Circles will focus on everyday topics, incorporating fun activities to promote cross-cultural exchange and help students build a social network. We will explore the idiosyncrasies of the English language and learn idioms and expressions so that students can increase their confidence and comprehension. The primary focus will be on discussions that take place in the ESL and writing classrooms, with an eye toward helping students write better, clearer papers, but will also include everyday conversational scenarios.  

FRIDAYS 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.

Facilitated by Writing Center Consultant, Tegan Robinson

South Omaha Campus Writing Center Connector Building, Room 222    

*Note:  Part-time faculty who participate in this workshop are eligible for professional development compensation for their attendance.  We will provide the reimbursement forms.  Full-time faculty may represent their participation in this workshop in the "Professional Development" section of the "Faculty Professional Portfolio."**
