  • “Foregrounds” is a show exploring how we listen to sounds. It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach. Presented by DJ Derek (Corn), DJ Nasera (Alayon), DJ Max (Miles) of the Otis Radio class.

Best Practices for Teaching ESL, EFL, ESOL Students

"If you require students to produce writing to evidence their learning in your class, then guiding students in creating that outcome should be a part of your teaching. It’s not all about grammar and correctness; good writing is good thinking. With some insight into proven best practices in student writing, you can help your students improve their writing and thinking skills."

Example:

Liberal Arts & Sciences identifies students through the EPA with language issues that may impact success in a course. The following are options depending on what works best for the course and student:

  • Require all work handed in be reviewed by a tutor and signed off
  • Complete Academic Support Referral Forms, especially if students are encouraged to concentrate on a particular aspect of a given assignment
  • Work out a tutoring contract with Dr. Carol Branch regarding practice tutorial hours for speech issues if applicable
  • Review other work posted in student's Learning ePortfolio to get a sense of what a student can and cannot do
  • Provide clear step-by-step instructions in written form and verbally
