MSU Writing Institute

Posted: Updated:

"Teachers are teaching teachers" all month long at Minot State University for this years Northern Plains Writing Project.

Today was the first day of the institute giving new teachers hands on examples of how literature stretches to all subjects.

The idea of the class is to show different ways to apply writing skills to everyday life.

Class participants give presentations to show their unique angles on writing and how to relay that to students.

The instructor of the institute says that it's a hands on way to help new teachers get even better.

(Ron Fischer, MSU English Professor) "They realize there's a big gap between what you learned when you went through university, and what you experience as a practicing teacher. We want them to begin processing "Well, what did you experience as a teacher? What didn't work? What does work? Where are your struggles?"

The class will continue to be held every summer for new or returning teachers of any subject.

You can contact MSU for any additional information.
