Writing for resilience and interculturality: A binational student’s journal 

Panelists: Roxana Carolina Perca Chagua and Maria Elena Fávaro 

We all know that the writing process is key in English language learning and teaching. Still, it can also be a great tool to promote self-expression, social awareness, and collaborative work so that it becomes a meaningful experience for students and teachers.  

In this free webinar, Roxana Perca and Elena Fávaro share the outcomes of their project Yatiqirina Arupa: the Journal of Additional Languages in Secondary Education to consolidate the writing process in English learning. 

Roxana Perca works for the Peruvian Ministry of Education and holds a master’s in Linguistics. Elena Fávaro is a doctor in Language Sciences from the Universidad del Sur de Santa Catarina and a Master in Linguistics from Federal University and Santa Catarina. 

Writing process and collective work  

Starting from a meaningful situation, and involving a global context, a subject, a local context, questioning, and a challenge, the writing process can raise social awareness and promote self-expression, which is the methodology proposed by Roxana Perca and Elena Fávaro.   

Based on the question how can the production of a student’s journal contribute to students’ writing competence so that it motivates them to gain their voices and agency? They implemented a collaborative writing project in a Peruvian public school, among students aged between 15 and 16 years old, and a secondary technical education program in Brazil, among students aged between 16 and 20 years old.
