November Accomplishments

Pretty Cool Things Accomplished By EFLJers in November:

Dawn Terrick presented the paper “Coming in From the Boundaries: A Learning Community that Unites Elementary School Children with First-Generation College Students to Illustrate the Possibilities of Education” at the 16th Annual National Learning Communities Conference, hosted by Harper College, in Chicago, IL

Susan Hennessy attended the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages annual meeting in Denver. She presented the Missouri Foreign Language Collaboration Initiative.

Exhibitions/Publications/Peer Review
Susan Hennessy’s article "Academy of Future French Teachers: A Plan for Recruiting" appeared in the November issue of the American Association of Teachers of French (AATF) National Bulletin.

Student/Community Involvement/Successes
Approximately 30 freshmen honors students attended a presentation by Beth Schild, former Peace Corps volunteer in Senegal, West Africa. This event reflects the theme of Susan Hennessy’s HON 195 this semester: Being a World Citizen.

Jane Frick led a breakout session, "Building Relationships with Your State Department of Education" at the National Writing Project's annual meeting, held in Chicago, November 17-18. Frick also coordinated the delivery of Prairie Land Writing Project's "Making and Technical Writing" workshop, held at Missouri Western on November 12. The workshop was funded by a National Writing Project grant from the MacArthur Foundation and the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Kaye Adkins, MWSU English professor, was the workshop conference keynote speaker; thirty-five area teachers participated.

Jeanie Crain completed her third reaffirmation review for AQIP

The rest of us will try to amount to something soon.
