Writing must be made fun in the ESL classrooms! Why limit the writing classes to just a few genres? By teaching different genres of writing, learners not only learn to write but also enjoy the experience. This workshop will focus on exploring the different genres of writing that would develop the writing skills of students in an ESL classroom.
