SFSU M.A. TESOL Conference: Fall 2012

group photo homepage

I am very excited to share my graduate experience with you through our final day-long conference. The website (matesolfall2012.wordpress.com) will be your guide to the SFSU M.A. TESOL’s Fall 2012 Conference. Creating and designing the website was my job, with valuable input from my colleagues of course, so I hope you find it resourceful and accessible.

During the conference, I will present on:

Six Degrees of Separation: Why Social Networks Matter in the ESL Classroom

It is our hope as teachers that in classroom communication, our students are never separated by as much as “six degrees”, that they interact willingly and personally with each other through the connections and relationships they make in class – their social network. This presentation describes my case study findings from using social network theory to examine the patterns of student communication in my classroom and visualize how an individual student’s communication patterns are influenced by peers.

You can check out the entire conference schedule as well as a description of all the presentations.

We hope to see you at the conference!
