Advanced Reading for Meeting in the Middle

We look forward to seeing many of you on Friday, February 19th, for Meeting in the Middle. To prepare for the morning session on Supporting ESL Writers: Dispelling Myths, Developing Strategies, we recommend reading the following:

CCCC Statement on Second Language Writing and Writers

Friedrich, Patricia. “Assessing the Needs of Linguistically Diverse First-Year Students: Bringing Together and Telling Apart International ESL, Resident ESL and Monolingual Basic Writers.” WPA: Writing Program Administration 30.1-2 (Fall 2006): 15-35.

Shuck, Gail. “Combating Monolingualism: A Novice Administrator’s Challenge.”WPA: Writing Program Administration 30.1-2 (Fall 2006): 59-82.

Please print these texts – or download an electronic copy – to bring with you to Charlotte. We hope you will find time to read one or more before the morning session.
