LRC Faculty Reading Group

The LRC Faculty Reading group is an informal reading/discussion group; an opportunity to read in different areas of language instruction/acquisition and then share reactions and reflect on classroom practice. The group meets a few times each semester, choosing topics of interest for future meetings. Contact Daryl Beres, LRC Director for more info or to suggest meeting times.

  • First meeting for 2011-12 -  Thursday, October 20, 4:15-5:15 pm
    • Topic: Discussion/reflection on the lecture/workshop presented by Silvina Montrul at UMass on Oct. 14-15:
      "Degree of Attrition and Incomplete Acquisition of Differential Object Marking in Spanish, Hindi and Romanian as Heritage Languages"
    • Readings to be determined following Montrul's lecture.

All faculty welcome!
