Dr. Stephen L. Mann, English Department faculty member, will continue the English Department's 2013-2014 William J. and Yvonne Hyde Colloquium Series with a presentation entitled "Schoolhouse Rock as both Pedagogical Tool and Model in a College-Level English Grammars Course." This presentation addresses a semester-long group project designed to help students become actively engaged in a linguistically-grounded approach to English grammar, which often challenges many of their preconceived notions of grammar. The project also gives pre-service teachers a model assignment, which they can adapt and use in their own English and language arts classrooms. The presentation will address the project's goals, requirements, execution, initial results, and lessons learned. The presentation runs from 2:30-3:30 p.m. on Friday, December 6th, in 113 Wimberly Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
