Lowcountry Writing Project offering new classes this fall
The Lowcountry Writing Project at The Citadel will conduct two classes this fall to improve the writing and storytelling skills of area teachers.
Professional Writing (ENGL 551) will help teachers learn how to write grants for their classrooms and other professional purposes. This course, which will be taught by Lauren Rule, assistant professor of English, also includes a focus on grammar and rhetoric, so teachers can be more confident teaching these concepts to their own students. Classes meet at The Citadel on Wednesdays from 5-8 p.m., Sept. 2 through Dec. 9. The course fee of $300 includes all books and materials.
Digital Storytelling (EDUC 587), taught by Emily Elliott, a Charleston County School District educational technology specialist, will help teachers learn how to create and edit images and audio files for digital narratives to use in their classrooms. Teachers can also teach their students these skills so students, too, can create digital presentations for class. Classes meet at The Citadel on Sept. 1, 5, 8 and 29; Oct. 3 and 6; Nov. 3, 7 and 10; Tuesday night sessions meet from 5-8 p.m., and Saturday sessions meet from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The course fee of $300 includes all materials.
Each course is worth three hours of graduate credit through The Citadel Graduate College, and is open to all public and private school teachers in the Lowcountry. For more information or to register go to www.citadel.edu/writingproject, call 953-1418, or emailLWP@citadel.edu.
