Author(s)

Joanna Luks earned a B.A. in Chinese Studies from Columbia University, a professional certificate in teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL) from the American University of Paris, and an Ed.M. from Boston University's School of Education in Teaching English for Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).


She taught EFL in France and China, and ESL at Boston University and, starting in 1994, at Cornell. She joined the French program at Cornell in Fall 2003. She has been married to a Frenchman since 1984 and lived in Paris for six years. Her areas of interest include TA development for language pedagogy, articulation across language, literary and cultural studies, and materials development for language learning and teaching, including the (re)conceptualization and visualization of grammar drawing from theories in cognitive grammar.


She is currently the course coordinator for French 1210 and 1220, the introductory level. In Fall 2004 she was awarded a grant by the Consortium for Language Teaching and Learning and provided support by the Department of Romance Studies for the creation of a course for TA development within the department. The course was offered for the first time in Spring 2005.
