What is this about? 


In this session, Benjamin Stewart introduces a five-day workshop beginning January 11, 2016, to be conducted face to face with on-site participants in Mexico via the wiki here: http://academicwritingpd.pbworks.com/.  Here, and at the Google+ event page for this event, Benjamin poses the question: As an EFL/ESL educator, what issues do you face? Participants of this workshop will be asked to develop a thesis around this essential question as they develop an argument with supporting claims and logical reasoning patterns.
