Comparative Literature Graduate Teaching Assistant Presents at Active and Experiential Approaches to Language Instruction

Becky Sexton

Becky Sexton presented at the Modern Language Educators' Share Fair 2019 Program on Thursday, March 21. The event was hosted by the Center for Teaching and Learning and the Department of Romance Languages. Ms. Sexton's presentation was titled "Vocabulary/Grammar Acquisition through Drawing." She demonstrated her practice of using drawing activities with small groups of students in her Japanese language classes. These activities engage and energize students. These experiences also reinforce vocabulary and grammar acquisition while strengthening listening and speaking skills.

Becky Sexton is a Comparative Literature PhD candidate and graduate teaching assistant in the Comparative Literature Department. She teaches Japanese in our Japanese language program, as well as Comparative Literature courses.
