Great event in Fargo this Tuesday night (10/26)!

Please consider joining Kelly Sassi, new RRVWP co-director and English education professor at NDSU, as her students present a book study on Teaching the New Writing: Technology, Change, and Assessment in the 21st-century Classroom. Her English methods and graduate students will give brief, interactive presentations on certain chapters, and a general discussion of the book will follow. All the detailed information is below—since there are chapter presentations, you don’t have to read the book to participate (though you may want to pick up a copy once you hear about it).

The book study is tomorrow night (Tuesday, October 26) from 7-8:30pm on the NDSU campus in FLC, 2nd floor, at the hallway near the Memorial Union.
