Workshops & Presentation

I have given talks, conducted workshops, and delivered keynote speeches at teacher conferences all over the world. Most of my talks - whether they are based on quantitative or qualitative methods - are first and foremost practical. I am a language teacher with a research background, but I am more applied than theoretical, as the topics of my presentations clearly show.

I have given presentations at many conferences, but the highlight of all of them has to be the plenary talk that I made before three thousand people at the International TESOL Convention in Tampa in 2006, "Everything I Know about Teaching I Learned from My Own Teachers-Almost."

Through the United States Information Agency (USIA) Specialist Program, I have been invited to do talks and workshops in many countries, including Argentina, Chile, Guatemala, Kyrgyzstan, Mexico, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, and Uzbekistan.

I also work with K-12 teachers and have conducted many workshops on issues pertaining to English Language Learners in the U.S. K-12 setting. One good example is the excellent summer program that the state of Arkansas offers for selected K-12 teachers who are dealing with the growing number of ELLs there.
