College Readiness in Writing Symposium

The College Readiness in Writing Symposium is intended to give high school English teachers and college writing professors a chance to discuss concerns, best practices, and shared goals. Panelists from area high schools, college writing programs, and college writing centers will kick off conversations regarding planning, practice, and assessment. We will delve into the questions that we have as educators and share ideas about teaching and learning.
