Technology and language arts for educators at Ohio University-Zanesville

ZANESVILLE, Ohio (Feb. 23, 2005) -- Ohio University-Zanesville, with support from the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation, will hold a workshop series entitled Differentiated Learning in Language Arts for educators who teach kindergarten through eighth grade.

Sponsored by the Office of Continuing Education at Ohio University-Zanesville, the workshop will focus on utilizing technology in the Language Arts classroom. The curriculum provides time for teachers to work together to discuss challenges and share best practices. Participants will be introduced to techniques and software designed to assist in the instruction of language arts, specifically in the development and enhancement of reading and writing skills. The workshop series is designed so participants can learn, implement and assess the content through three sessions.

Participants in this professional development series may apply for three hours of graduate credit at $85 per credit hour. Those who register and complete the series may also be eligible for a limited number of stipends for technology supplies made possible by the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation.

The first session is on March 12 for kindergarten through third grade teachers and on March 19 for those who teach grades four through eight. The second session is scheduled for April 16 for the kindergarten through third grade teachers and on April 30 for fourth through eighth grade teachers. The final session will be held in May with the schedule yet to be determined.

All sessions will be held at Ohio University-Zanesville from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on the dates listed above. For more information, contact Corrine Lund, Coordinator for Educator Professional Development at (740) 588-1494 or via email at lund@ohio.edu.
