Professor

Iris Ramer,

of the ESL/Languages and Cultures Department, was the keynote speaker at the 41st Annual Puerto Rico TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) Convention in November in Ponce, Puerto Rico. Dr. Ramer’s talk, “Addressing Language Competencies Using a Multicultural Approach,” focused on strategies and class projects to get English language learners to engage in meaningful communication using balanced literacy and communicative language teaching. At the conference, Dr. Ramer was also recognized and thanked for her 30-plus years of support to the organization, teachers and students. Dr. Ramer’s popular textbooks “Read Now” and “Write Now,” published by Kendall/Hunt, were part of the publisher’s exhibit during the conference. As founder of the Read Now Project and co-founder of Literacy Solutions LLC, Dr. Ramer was also able to share ways to promote literacy skills for students at all levels.
