Event description

Description

This presentation looks at the potential for developing a meaningful writing/speaking relationship. More specifically, the presenter considers how writing skills and teaching writing can be enhanced through public speaking skills. In contrast to SLA theories, the presenter offers an alternative approach to how teaching writing skills might be framed through public speaking. Another way to think about writing skills might be to ask:

  • Can particular public speaking skills help students move from conventional writing understanding and practices to engaging with writing skills more effectively?

The presenter hypothesizes that a positive transfer effect can develop from public speaking to college writing skills.
