thesis / dissertation description
This project is a series of writing and reading techniques designed to help students increase awareness of themselves and of others as cultural beings. The techniques incorporate freewriting and revision processes to encourage the students to think more deeply and to express themselves more clearly in writing. Each technique includes cultural and writing objectives, procedure, results and an evaluation. The techniques are designed for intermediate to advanced ESL students in a multicultural classroom.
