August Connections Seminar for High School Teachers Open for Registration

The Writing Initiative at Passaic County Community College fosters connections with area high schools and other colleges.

With a commitment to promoting writing across the curriculum, we offer the second of our small-group seminar sessions for high school teachers in all disciplines this summer.

How do teachers capture the attention of a visual, online, Net Generation of students in a time of fragmented instruction, high-stakes testing and the social and economic tensions?

We will discuss some strategies to address these concerns and share approaches and tools that you have found effective.

The Writing Initiative at PCCC works with faculty across disciplines to create varied opportunities in writing-to-learn rather than the traditional learning-to-write approach that might apply only to the English classroom. We incorporate technology, from advanced features in Microsoft Word to online tools.

Applications are now being accepted for the August seminar from teachers from high school in the Passaic County district that surround our Paterson, Wanaque and Passaic campuses.

With the school year ended, take this opportunity to both renew your own approach to writing and explore ways to use these approaches in your classroom.

DATE: August 23 and 24 (Mon/Tues) from 9am – 3pm
LOCATION: PCCC, Paterson campus

Attendees will receive a stipend of $500 for attendance at the two days and completion of the activities, and will also receive professional development hours for their participation.

Deadline for receipt of application: July 30, 2010
