"Life after Composition: Improving Student Learning with Writing." - TYCA Northeast

I presented with Elizabeth Nesius at the TYCA-NE (Two Year College Association - Northeast) 47th Annual Conference in Syracuse, New York which was held October 25-27, 2012.

Our presentation, "Life after Composition: Improving Student Learning with Writing," is about the Writing Initiative at Passaic County Community College which we developed over the past five years.

This Title V grant program of student and faculty support and collaboration across disciplines at the general education course level. The Writing Initiative, which received a NCTE Diane Hacker 2012 Award, solidifies a targeted approach to student success by focusing on reforming curriculum using writing-intensive courses and providing ample academic support, and creating opportunities for faculty professional development.
