Redwood Writing Project 2015 Literacy Connections

Founders Hall
Focusing on teaching literacy with Common Core Standards, the Redwood Writing Project's 2015 Conference, "Literacy Connections" will offer something of value to educators of all disciplines and grade levels.

Each summer, a group of kindergarten through college teachers meet to share their knowledge and develop their writing and teaching skills in the Redwood Writing Project’s Summer Institute. The goal of the program is for teachers to take their new skills into their classrooms, refine their teaching craft through research and practice and to ultimately share their findings and develop training for colleagues.

The Redwood Writing Project is located at Humboldt State and is affiliated with the National Writing Project (NWP) and California Writing Project (CWP).

This year, RWP teacher consultants have organized their findings and prepared workshops for Saturday, February 28th in Founders Hall from 8:30 to 4:30.

Workshops will cover topics such as Using Ted Talks for Teaching Informative Writing and Improving Narrative Writing: Show, Don’t Tell. Participants will have a choice of four workshops from twelve total options.

Cassandra Wilson Coming Forth By Day: A Celebration of Billie Holiday

Van Duzer Theater
Time Magazine called her “America’s best singer”—there is simply no denying the power of Cassandra Wilson’s voice. Applying her rich, smoky contralto to songs from a diversity of sources, her inspired interpretive gifts transform any material into a sophisticated and deeply personal vision for contemporary jazz. In her newest show, she pays tribute to the work of one of jazz’s most legendary singers, Billie Holiday.
