Using MICUSP in EAP Teaching
Since MICUSP contains around 830 A-grade assignments from upper-level students in 16 different disciplines, it is a great resource for EAP instructors who are looking for model writing samples for their less advanced or less proficient writing students.
We will soon provide guidelines for teachers on how to retrieve relevant texts or text sections from MICUSP. We are also planning to create some MICUSP-based ESL/EAP teaching materials, in analogy to the teaching materials based on MICASE. In the meantime, we invite you to check out our MICUSP Kibbitzer pages which present snippets of pedagigically inspired MICUSP-based research.
These tutorials show you how to use MICUSP Simple and how to browse for and search in MICUSP papers.
