Symposium on Preparing College-Ready Writers with One World Education
Join One World Education on September 22 for a timely conversation on preparing students for the rigors of college-level writing, featuring a diverse panel of speakers representing different perspectives on the topic. We are all too familiar with the countless reports from higher education and the business community that the state of student writing is in serious need of repair. To address these challenges, One World Education is bringing together K-12 and university experts to provide a forum for exchanging successful strategies and initiatives that work at different levels, with a particular focus on instruction and assignments.
