The synthesizing Mind: Scads of Information, especially on the web. Largely undigested
and unevaluated. The synthesizing imperative. Good, bad, and „so-so” syntheses. We need
to develop “Synthesis 101” for teachers and students.
The Creating Mind: Mastering one or more discipline-10 year rule. Synthesizing what is
known(the box itself). Going beyond the known-thinking outside the box. Good questions,
new questions. Robust, iconoclastic temperament. The ultimate judgment of the “field”

Using Technology Not just for Technology’s Sake
Rob Jenkins, Staci Johnson,
How to incorporate technology without making them in a
focus? How to use a time effectively?
What is the role of technology? The goal is to give students
challenging opportunities to be successful in their language-
learning experience, so they develop self-confidence, and
getting to be independent.
Lesson Planning: Good Lesson Planning is an often invisible
but absolutely essential part of all good teaching-especially
effective language teaching.
Steps for effective lesson: warm-up, Introduction, Presentation,
Practice, Evaluation, Application.
Technology should not change the content of the material,
because they are only the tools that help us teach better.

Getting your students into the Movies, Linda Chu, Chuck Phillips
Using movies into the classroom enhances listening skills, understanding of current idioms,
and self-confidence in speaking English. This presentation demonstrated a system of using
a movie paired with dramatic script readings over an extended period to engage students in
active learning use. Presenters used a role –game at the session, so participants could play
the roles, and then watch the same play by the movie.
Integrating Research Projects and Poster Presentations in ESL Writing Classes.

Focus grammar practice. Teach discourse markers.
The “energy” factory of pronunciation. You are never too old to learn a new language.
