This virtual seminar cheerfully and optimistically hopes to change the way writing is approached in English language learning programs (from elementary schools to programs in higher education) by demonstrating the power of creative writing. Drawing from Randolph and Ruppert’s new book, New Ways in Teaching with Creative Writing, this session helps participants become aware of the various tools that creative writing can offer English language learners while they develop their craft. We will briefly look at the general challenges that English language learners face in their writing classes and then show how activities in poetry, prose, and dialogue can solve these issues and enhance both their critical thinking and academic writing skills. Ultimately, participants will understand how these creative writing activities promote a fun, effective, and positive writing experience that motivates their students and improves their skills. Participants are encouraged to bring a smile, a creative mind, and an energetic teaching and learning spirit to this uplifting and useful virtual seminar.
