Suffolk County Community College The 6th Teaching of Writing Festival 10/26/18

The 6th Teaching of Writing Festival

Suffolk County Community College

Friday, October 26th from 9:00am-2:00pm

The sixth Teaching of Writing Festival will be held at Suffolk County Community College (Ammerman Campus, Selden NY) on Friday October 26th from 9:00am-2:00pm through the auspices of the Ammerman English Department and the Office of Academic Affairs. This conference/festival is for teachers, students, and administrators to learn, share, and celebrate different approaches to the teaching of writing. We are inviting teachers and students from local high schools, colleges, and universities to explore the diversity of academic writing and how we can bridge the gaps between high schools, two year colleges, and four year universities. The theme of this year’s conference is the link between journalism, news literacy, and teaching writing: how these forms of composing and research mutually inform each other as well as the pedagogies of teaching both subjects. Our keynote speaker will be Howard Schneider, Dean of the School of Journalism at Stony Brook University.

These professional development workshops will be given by faculty from across Long Island to give our conference/festival a more diverse program. Proposed workshops  include syllabus construction, creating high school writing centers, college writing centers, evaluating student writing, assessing student performance and progress, BRIDGE programs, developmental writing, creating in class assignments, successful writing prompts, academic integrity/plagiarism, collaborations between high schools, two year, and four year schools, teaching for/against COMMON CORE, writing beyond COMMON CORE, journalistic approaches to composition, and research and revision preparation for multiple writing situations. We are also inviting students to participate as well so that faculty can gain more holistic and practical insights into the writing process and how teachers and students conceive, perceive, and live writing in all aspects of academic, civic, and community life. The Teaching of Writing Festival will provide speakers, workshops, breakout sessions, relevant activities, and opportunities to discuss, explore, and celebrate diverse teaching methods in order to enhance and expand practices of writing, composition, and rhetoric. This event is open to all who are interested in writing so please share this with your colleagues!

TO:                  The College Community

FROM:           Christopher Adams, Ed.D., Vice President for Student Affairs

SUBJECT:     Christina Vargas Named as Grand Marshal of the

52nd Annual Puerto Rican/Hispanic Day Parade – Sunday, June 3rd

I am pleased to share with the college community that Christina Vargas, Chief Diversity Officer for Suffolk County Community College, has been selected as this year’s Grand Marshal for Long Island’s largest parade—the Puerto Rican/Hispanic Day Parade. The parade will be held this coming Sunday, June 3rd, commencing at noon and ending at approximately 3 p.m.

As always, the parade is scheduled to take place, rain or shine, in Brentwood.  With tens of thousands of spectators lining the parade route along Fifth Avenue in Brentwood, thousands of marchers will head north for almost 1½ miles from the Southern State Parkway Service Road to 4th Avenue.

We are encouraging all College faculty, staff, students, alumni and families to join us and march in support of this important community event and in celebration of Christina’s recognition as Grand Marshal.  The position line-up begins at 10 a.m., and all participants must be in position before 11 a.m. as streets will eventually be closed. The College’s parade line-up position is #7 (right behind our Grand Marshal).  Anyone planning to march should arrive at our meeting location, which is 5th Industrial Court (off Fifth Avenue), in Bay Shore, NY.

This year’s parade theme, “El Puente de la Esperanza / The Bridge of Hope,” will highlight Puerto Rico’s recovery following Hurricane Maria, while celebrating how communities come together in times of need through culture and art.

Christina, along with the other parade honorees, epitomize the event theme, as each of these individuals brings hope to the local community through their daily work:

  • Grand Marshal: Christina Vargas, Chief Diversity Officer, Suffolk County Community College
  • Presidential Award: Presiding Officer of the Suffolk County Legislature, DuWayne Gregory
  • Sandra M. Gil Champion Award: Isabel Sepulveda, Long Island East End Advocate
  • Nilda Alvarez Social Justice Award: Irma Solis, NYCLU, Long Island Chapter Director
  • Roberto Clemente Humanitarian Award: Sam Cruz, KBG Logistics

Parade Officials

The music, floats, dancers and artistic displays will all be part of the day’s excitement. We hope you will join us in celebrating Suffolk County Community College and Christina Vargas as the parade’s Grand Marshal.  I am confident it will be an enjoyable day of community and culture!
