We welcome creative interpretation - and deviation - from this year's theme of Promoting Metacognition in the Classroom. Our keynote speaker,s Wendy Sharer and Kerri Flinchbaugh, explains that metacognition—monitoring, evaluating, and adjusting one's own approaches to learning---is essential for a writer's development. Our morning workshop will focus on two related areas: 1) strategies for helping students develop metacognitive awareness of their writing processes, and 2) promoting metacognitive pedagogy through WAC–based professional development.
Your presentation may be closely, loosely, or not at all related to this theme.
Three different presentation types reflect members' interests: PROBLEM: Describe a teaching, program leadership, or research problem that you would like help thinking about with other attendees. 10-15 minutes includes feedback time.
SHOWCASE: Share a teaching method or writing program leadership strategy that is working well at your site. Or present findings from a study you’re involved in that would interest writing teachers and WPAs. 10-15 minutes includes feedback time.
OTHER: You have an idea that doesn’t fit either category. Explain! You still have 10-15 minutes to present.
Proposal deadline: 11:59PM Friday, January 18, 2019.
