All faculty are invited to share their work for peer review at this monthly writing workshop.
Facilitator: Dr. Chris Anson, University Distinguished Professor and Chair, Department of English, NC State, Campus Writing and Speaking Program Director
As part of the College of Arts & Sciences’ first-year curriculum redesign initiative, the CAS Dean’s office is hosting a day-long in-service faculty development workshop focusing on how to teach reading effectively and the connection between reading and writing in the disciplines. Funded by the College’s “Strengthening the Liberal Arts” grant from the Mellon Foundation, the workshop will help launch the next major phase of first-year curriculum initiative, the design of CRS 102. The program will support teaching at all levels at Trinity, as these fundamental skills demand continual development.
The workshop will provide theoretical and practical orientation on the relationship between reading and writing (including an emphasis on “writing to read” and “writing to learn” and “reading to write”), and ample opportunities for faculty to engage in hands-on work developing activities and assignments that prepare students to meet our learning goals. Led by Dr. Chris Anson, a nationally recognized expert in reading and writing instruction, this event is open to all faculty and promises to provide invaluable support for reading and writing instruction across the curriculum at Trinity.
