ZANESVILLE, Ohio (June 11, 2004) -- On Friday, June 18, Ohio University Zanesville Campus presents "Highlights-Teaching to Tomorrow" in the Zanesville Campus Center. The one-day conference allows the teachers to become the students, learning how to integrate required content standards into their classrooms while making education fun.
Participants will attend sessions in the areas of Language Arts, Math & Science, the Arts and Social Studies. Topics include increasing parent involvement, integrating science throughout education, and enhancing learning through creativity. Kathy Rank, Ohio's 2004 Teacher of the Year from Piqua Schools, will also attend the event.
Roger Jerome conducts the plenary session "Drama in the Classroom," realistically guiding participants to utilize drama to enhance the learning process. An authority on the area of theater, Jerome suggests there is no better place than in the classroom for the natural performing talent of children.
"Free Time" has been built into the event to allow educators to catch their breath, meet new colleagues and relieve any remaining school-year stress with sessions on Yoga or Drumming Therapy.
Education vendors, including Sax Arts and Crafts and Binney & Smith, will share products to aid in planning for the upcoming school year.
Continuing education credit is available for attendees. One quarter hour of graduate credit is available to participants for $85. Undergraduate education students may also register for one credit hour. The session is also available for non-credit, at a cost of only $30.
