ELT Week: Academic Writing & Rhetorical Analysis
The American Center in Moscow and the English Language Office are inviting practicing and aspiring English language teachers to English Language Teaching Week on October 21-25, 2019. ELT Week at AMC is a week of daily lectures and workshops from ELT specialists on various aspects of teaching English as a foreign language. The topics covered will include teaching English through video, teaching speaking, teaching academic writing, EMI (English as a Medium of Instruction), and creating an online EL course.
On October 23 at 5-6:30 pm, you are invited to a talk on the topic of academic writing in general and a workshop on Rhetorical Analysis by the English Language Fellow Leticia Medina.
Critical analysis of content we consume is crucial if we are to make informed decisions about things and events that impact our day-to-day lives. Leticia Medina, EL Fellow at NUST MISiS, will lead an interactive workshop that will encourage participants to engage their critical thinking skills in analyzing a specific language-related event that occurred at a U.S.-based university campus. Participants will be asked to evaluate the language used in public email correspondence and discuss the strengths of the arguments made.
About the instructor: Leticia Medina is a doctoral fellow at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) in Texas, where she has also been a Lecturer in the Writing Program and an instructor in the English for International Students (EIS) program. Leticia’s teaching experience encompasses instruction in academic writing as well as teaching World and British literature. Most recently, Leticia taught Advanced English for Academic Purposes to international PhD students from a number of foreign countries, including India, Iran, Bangladesh, México, Brazil, China, Russia, and Angola, among others. Leticia is an enthusiastic proponent of the collaborative classroom, in which students are encouraged to participate in the decision-making process in terms of curricula and assignment schedules. The idea is to create a classroom environment that allows for students to claim agency in their own learning process. This academic year Leticia is the English Language Fellow at NUST MISiS.
