Presenters: English faculty from UW System campuses
We know that all students take English as seniors, but what should students be learning in that senior year English course to best prepare them for the rigors of college? Presentation will focus on the most valuable language skills for incoming freshmen, the value of focusing senior-year classes on composition for different audiences and reading (though not necessarily literature), and plagiarism. Participants will hear about the expectations UW faculty have for incoming freshmen and about various initiatives and resources to help students transition into college-level composition courses. In addition, time will be allotted for participants to ask questions.
