Suffolk County Community College’s sixth annual Conference is for teachers, administrators, and students to learn, share, and celebrate different approaches to the teaching of writing. Teachers and students from local high schools, colleges, and universities are invited to explore the diversity of academic writing and how we can bridge the gaps between high schools, two year colleges, and four year universities.

Registration is free. If you would like to submit a proposal or attend, please contact William Burns at 631 451-4537 or burnsw@sunysuffolk.edu.  Certificates of participation will be issued for all attendees.

 

(2) Please share with all LOTE/ELL teachers, administrators, guidance counselors, and students who may have an interest to … an Exciting Professional Development Opportunity ... An advanced Spanish course … Thank you!

In recent years, Suffolk County has seen a large influx of immigrants from Spanish-speaking countries.   Educators in Spanish-speaking communities find they have a compelling need to learn to communicate not only with the new students from these countries, but also with their parents.  In addition, these educators must come to understand cultural practices that might play a role in how the students adapt to their new environment.

Suffolk County Community College is offering SPANISH FOR EDUCATORS I during the 1st SUMMER SESSION and SPANISH FOR EDUCATORS II during the 2nd SUMMER SESSION in order to give current administrators, teachers and operational personnel an opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills required to address the needs of their communities and institutions.  The course will run at Suffolk’s Ammerman Campus, in Selden during the times and dates below.
