One of the most useful aspects of having a real audience in presentational communication is that the audience will provide gaps that students can investigate, understand, explore, and then write about or talk about.

- Paul Kei Matsuda, Assistant Professor of English, University of New Hampshire


Learning Goals

How do you organize an effective written or oral presentational task that has students focus on a particular audience? In this session, you'll review relevant research, observe video discussions and classroom examples, and do a culminating activity on the presentational mode of communication. At the end of this session, you will better understand how to:
  • take audience into consideration when designing written and oral presentational tasks;
  • help students develop a repertoire of strategies for completing presentational tasks; and
  • spiral writing tasks as students develop proficiency in the language.
