Lesson plans & materials

Assorted individual class designs and artifacts for ELL and academic-writing instruction, and for leading reflection among a teaching cohort. I developed these materials individually – sources are cited, where relevant – as an ELL and writing instructor from 2010 to the present.

Open letter to the undocumented (2010)

The letter, written while volunteering with Literacy Volunteers of Atlanta, GA, is a bilingual text for a class of female English-language learners from Guerrero, Oaxaca and Veracruz, México.

ELL acrostic, Popayán, Colombia (2011)

An acrostic created for the 2011 cooperative teaching exchange between Sueños Compartidos and la Asociación de Institutores y Trabajadores de la Educación del Cauca (ASOINCA)

Teaching paragraphing (2017)

A module for ENGL 600, “Internship in the College Teaching of English,” Northern Illinois University, spring 2017

Language corpora and ELLs (2017)

The purpose of the lesson is to help students, using online language corpora, develop a strategy for learning on their own as well as to lead them to self-guided resources for vocabulary acquisition.
