ANDREWS HALL, UNL CITY CAMPUS
Grant supported institute for teachers of grades 4-12, for 3 UNL graduate credits in English or Teaching, Learning, and Teacher Education.

Institute activities include: exploration of public, personal, and academic argument writing; hands-on experience writing arguments and participating in creative argument activities; practice working with informational and mulitmodal texts; collaborative inquiry into argument writing pedagogy and approaches to teaching argument that foster mutual understanding, civil discourse, and inquiry rather than only “winning.”
