    March 14 ~ Connecting College Expectations with High School Curricula

    Wednesday, March 14
    3-4 p.m. | Commerce & Finance Building, Room 104

    Often, we are unaware of current high school curricula. Consequently, it can be difficult to build on students’ experiences and communicate our expectations clearly. High School English teacher and English adjunct instructor Paul Ruth will discuss current English high school curricula and the knowledge and experiences students bring with them when entering college.

    April 12 ~ Developing Peer Review Workshops

    Thursday, April 12
    12:45-1:45 p.m. | Commerce & Finance Building, Room 213

    Peer review workshops are popular writing and review exercises. However, they are notoriously difficult to run and students often report that they do not feel qualified to provide feedback to a peer or that the feedback they received was useless. This workshop will explore successful strategies and common pitfalls of peer review workshops.
