Abstract (Summary)

It is vital for ESL students to find themselves in the context of an additive cultural environment that allows them to feel that the elements of their cultures are valued and taken into account for their second language learning process. Otherwise, the school environment could become hostile and could hinder the learning process of L2. This paper presents a workshop that encourages the promotion of a cultural additive environment in ESL classes by incorporating strategies that allow teachers to value the cultural background of students in the development of the classes. Through the implementation of the strategies proposed in this workshop as well as the promotion of a cultural additive environment, this research aims to facilitate the development of the linguistic skill of digital writing. Additionally, the use of Google Docs is incorporated as a technological tool in the framework of the learning strategies.
