What Makes a Writing Intensive Course

When: February 27, 2020, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Where: HE 1203

Presenter(s): Frida Kleiman and Nancy Greenbaum (Chemistry); Nora Carr (Queens College) and Stefania Porcelli (Romance Language), Dennis Paoli and Trudith Smoke (English)

How can we effectively improve our students’ writing? Is there a difference between writing intensive and composition classes?

This seminar will address common issues in teaching writing in various disciplines and propose strategies implemented by faculty at CUNY to overcome them. There will be three presentations by a panel of six speakers: Frida Kleiman and Nancy Greenbaum teach writing in chemistry classes; Dennis Paoli and Trudith Smoke coordinated the WAC program for many years; Nora Carr and Stefania Porcelli are working on a handbook for CUNY graduate teaching fellows and will seek feedback on their project.

Lunch will be provided!
