Hi everyone! I'm Rita Trickel from the Cleveland, Ohio area (United States). I just completed my Master of Ed in TESOL, and teach adult international students (from undergrads to professionals) at Cleveland State University. Although their goals vary, they all want to strengthen their English as quickly as possible, and I believe collaborative writing techniques with give them much more active production time than solitary writing alone. I'm eager to learn as much as possible from all of you and incorporate techniques and ideas into our classes.
