Collateral Learning Enhances the ESL Grammar Classroom A Workshop with Sandy N. Elbaum

6:00 p.m.

According to scientist Edward O. Wilson, "Narrative is the human way of working though a chaotic and unforgiving world."  Sandy N. Elbaum will demonstrate how this idea is reinforced by introducing grammar in high interest readings as context provides the collateral learning necessary for students to gain life and academic skills.

Sandra N. Elbaum was an ESL Instructor at Truman College, one of the City Colleges of Chicago, for thirty-six years. She has also taught in elementary and high schools, and in Mexico, Puerto Rico, the former Soviet Union, and Slovakia. Sandy is the author of the popular series Grammar in Context, now in its Fifth Edition.

Co-sponsored by the English Language Studies Department and Heinle Cengage Learning.
