Faculty activities

Marianne Kunkel's book-length poetry manuscript, All the Girls Shout Please, was named a semi-finalist for Ohio State University Press's The Journal Wheeler Prize for Poetry.

PLWP hosted the Teaching Argument Writing Cadre Meeting at Missouri Western, facilitated and attended by PLWP Teacher Consultants Amy Miller (MWSU), Tom Pankiewicz (MWSU, retired), Jane Frick (MWSU, retired),  Susan Martens (MWSU), Kathy Miller (Weston), Janet Jelavich (Maryville, retired), and Terri McAvoy (SJSD, retired).   The event welcomed teachers from the three school districts involved in our i3 College Ready Writers Program (Braymer, Breckenridge, and Hamilton) to rate student papers, blog about effective classroom practice, and assess students' ability to effectively incorporate and cite sources in argumentative writing.
