 Dr. Tomás Galguera

Successful use of language in academic settings requires that students make decisions about what they say or write, how they do this, and for what purposes. This requires that teachers understand discourse-level features of language, which are not always apparent. It is necessary to design pedagogy and curricula that teach and reinforce successful uses or language.
