Expand that Thought
A Center for Writing Toolbox Talk
Wednesday, November 4, 2015 12:00 - 1:00PM
AND Thursday, November 5, 2015 12:30 - 1:30PM
Faculty Lounge – Dinand Library

Expand that Thought is an incredibly practical tool for getting students to dig deeper into those brilliant, but terribly underdeveloped ideas. Toolbox talks provide an opportunity for faculty to discuss a specific, common issue that often comes up in student writing.  More than a discussion, it’s an opportunity to engage in an activity that you can take with you to use and adapt as fits your pedagogy.

Brown bag session – beverages and dessert provided

For planning purposes, please RSVP attendance only to Johanna Reilly (jbreilly@holycross.edu or ext. 2548)

What’s Your Metaphor?
A Center for Writing Toolbox Talk

12:30 - 1:30 AND
Wednesday, December 2, 2015
12:00 - 1:00 PM

Faculty Lounge – Dinand Library

Every teacher has a writing metaphor (or should) to explain the process of writing to students.  This session provides guidance as you reflect on your personal interests to create your own tool to engage students in the writing process. Toolbox talks provide an opportunity for faculty to discuss a specific, common issue that often comes up in student writing.  More than a discussion, it’s an opportunity to engage in an activity that you can take with you to use and adapt as fits your pedagogy.

Brown bag session – beverages and dessert provided
