Events for March 31, 2017
Writing Center Pizza and Pedagogy (faculty discussion)
(12:15 PM - 1:00 PM)
Once again, the Writing Center is sponsoring a Pizza and Pedagogy lunchtime discussion on how to help your students become better writers when writing is not the main point of your class. The topic for this year is building on writing skills taught in our first year writing classes. The majority of our students take Writing I and/or II in their first year. So by the time they get to their upper division classes, their writing should be perfect, right? Not so much. Apart from the fact that writing is a skill that takes time to develop, students often don’t transfer the skills they’ve learned in their introductory writing class(es) to their other classes. There obviously isn’t time to completely reteach writing in every class, but possibly we can encourage transfer of skills by explicitly making connections to what the students have already learned. To start off the discussion, Allen Grove will provide an overview of skills taught in Writing I and II and Mary McInnes will talk about ways she explicitly builds on those skills in art history classes without sacrificing content. Come share your ideas and successes with fellow faculty or just listen. Pizza will be served. RSVP to Vicky Westacott, firstname.lastname@example.org (so I know how much pizza to order).
March Women's and Gender Studies Roundtable
(12:20 PM - 1:10 PM)
The March Women's and Gender Studies Roundtable will be on Friday, March 31, from 12:20 - 1:10 p.m. in the Judson Leadership Center. The presenter will be Laurie McFadden, Director of the Women's and Gender Studies Program and University Archivist. Her topic will be "The Feminist Origins of Wonder Woman." This presentation will cover Wonder Woman's roots in the early suffrage and birth control movements and how she was specifically created to promote the idea of women as strong, independent leaders. The WGST roundtables are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
If you would like to present at a future WGST roundtable, please contact Sandra Singer at: email@example.com
