Disciplinary Literacies Showcase

by Cathy Fleischer

There’s still time to register for this year’s Disciplinary Literacies Showcase: How to Really Prepare Students for College and Career Writing:  February 11 (Saturday), 9 am – 2 pm at the EMU Student Center.

Join colleagues from across the disciplines and subject areas at both the secondary and college level to talk about writing—and about how we can help our students make smooth transitions across the grade levels and into the workplace

Our day will include:
  •           An introduction to the research base and practical strategies underlying a Disciplinary Literacies approach to writing and writing instruction
  •           Workshops led by EMU faculty and area secondary teachers on approaches to writing in a variety of disciplines
  •           Content-area discussions between university faculty and secondary teachers
  •          Panel discussions with

o   University students sharing anecdotes of their transition from high school to college writing and how teachers can help those transitions
o   Workplace representatives from a variety of fields sharing how professionals in their area write and how we can all better prepare students for the writing they will do in their careers

Please register for the event here.

This workshop is free to all participants.  Please contact Cathy Fleischer (cathy.fleischer@emich.edu) if you have any questions.
