We will look at these resources, evaluate science videos, and discuss using science videos in traditional and flipped classrooms.

Ready, Set, Write!  Going Deeper 
(Co-Sponsored by WE LEARN)
 
Presenter: Geraldine Cannon Becker, WE LEARN
 
As hard as it may be for writers to get started writing, it is often just as difficult to wrap up the process.  In the Ready, Set, Write:  Going Deeper webinar, we will show participants how to look for key words and cue phrases in their writing draft, which is a work in progress--words and phrases that might help the writer build to a statement of significance for the end of the essay and create a corresponding title for the finished work.
 
 Geraldine Cannon Becker, BA, MA, MFA, Associate Prof. of English and Creative Writing at the University of Maine at Fort Kent, is faculty advisor for SAGES (the Student Association for Greater English Studies). She has led adult basic education reading circles for the Maine Humanities Council, and is a member of the WE LEARN Board of Directors.
