Call for Proposals: Carolinas WPA Meeting in the Middle, Spring 2019
The Carolinas Writing Program Administrators encourage individual or team proposals from people in the Carolinas who work in any teaching or administrative positions related to writing. Our annual spring Meeting in the Middle takes place on Friday, February 8, 2019, 10:00 AM – 4:30 PM at UNC Charlotte Center City Building, 320 E. 9th Street, Charlotte, NC 28202.
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.
