ELWS alumna and faculty publish article about Non-Native English-Speaking Teachers (NNEST) in Academic Labor: Research and Artistry.

Asmita Ghimire, now a doctoral student at the University of Texas El Paso, formerly a UMD student, and Prof. Elizabethada A. Wright, in the Department of ELWS, have published an article about Non-Native English-Speaking Teachers (NNEST) in Academic Labor: Research and Artistry: Vol. 5 , Article 6.  

In the article, entitled "FYC’s Unrealized NNEST Egg: Why Non-Native English-Speaking Teachers belong in the First-Year Composition Classroom," they argue that when we see writing as an exercise of mind, ideas and thinking, NNEST of writing can be a strength in twenty-first century First Year Composition (FYC) courses.  

UMD ELWS students learn to conduct research, then they learn to share that research with the world.  For more information, visit Dr. Wright's web page. For more information about Asmita, visit the Race to a Degree article on UMD News.
