November 4, 2013 - Through the pilot studies from Fall 2012 and Spring 2013, the Pre-College Writing & English Education project has produced significant research achievements.
The team has recently received a $45,000 CIEG (Creating Inclusive Excellence Grants) research grant, which allows a longitudinal study focusing on developing and implementing the asset-based curriculum over the long-term, and creating opportunities for systematic collaboration between PCW instructors and pre-service teachers.
On Nov 24th, the team is presenting at National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) Annual Convention about what this project has found in this research particularly in relation to preparing preservice teachers to teach diverse learners. Also, based on the results of the two semesters’ pilot studies, the team has been working on scholarly articles and two manuscripts will be published soon.
