November 2015 Update
The Committee on Second Language Writing continues to work with members across the organization to provide resources for their work with multilingual writers. At CCCC 2014, we organized two workshops that are representative of our ongoing work. The morning workshop focused on multilingual writers’ transitions into college/university, into graduate education, and into workplace settings, while the afternoon workshop focused on best teaching and assessment practices. We also maintain a wiki that follows up on the workshops. At CCCC 2015, members presented at and participated in a wide variety of workshops and concurrent sessions: we encourage all CCCC members at the 2016 annual meeting to plan to attend relevant sessions as well as the open meeting of the Committee on Saturday morning. Members of the Committee continue to build on conversations about members’ interest in cultural and linguistic diversity on our campuses by addressing how cross-institutional collaborations and agreements can benefit multilingual students, how composition teachers and administrators can articulate these kinds of agreements on their campuses, and how CCCC/NCTE/TESOL might help stakeholders in the creation of such initiatives.
