This two-day workshop is designed to help high school and middle school English teachers bridge the gap between writing instruction at the secondary level and at the college level. Workshops will provide an overview of college-level writing expectations and assignments using the writers’ workshop model, review rubrics and alignment with secondary ELA standards and curricular mapping, and consider models for blended learning and digital writing portfolios.

Prof. Kist has taught middle and high school English, has served as a curriculum supervisor, and holds teacher, principal and superintendent licenses. Currently, he teaches education courses at Kent State University, as well as occasional classes in the English Department.
