English Studies for Teachers Celebration!
We’re thrilled that six Teacher Consultants are among the eight MA students who presented their research at the annual English Studies for Teachers Celebration/Presentation. Stacey Briggs (2011), Dawn Izzi (2010), Alli Kaplan (2006), Lauren (Russette) Nizol (2007), Brad Silverman (2010) and Michelle Westerdale (2003) joined MA colleagues Jason Elstone and Ethan Konett in the event.
The Celebration/Presentation gives these students an opportunity to talk to undergraduate and other graduate students about the teacher research studies they have pursued as the culminating projects of their MA degrees. Over the past year, they’ve learned about teacher research: from how to come up with a meaningful question to how to collect and analyze data to how to go public with their findings. Students will be finishing their amazing projects over the summer. Congrats to all of you!
