Eastern Michigan University Honored with Business Partner Award
Allen Park High School has awarded Eastern Michigan University with the Business Partners Award for providing professional development in literacy education through the university’s Writing Project program.
By providing many resources such as family literacy programs and the Summer Invitational Institute, the Writing Project works to improve the teaching of writing in all school subjects.
EMU English professors and lecturers Doug Baker, John Staunton, Cathy Fleischer, Kim Pavlock and William Tucker, the director of the Writing Project, have all taken part in this teaching opportunity.
“The professional development we bring to a school district depends primarily on the initiative of the local teachers, who advocate for our programs,” Tucker said in a press release. “In our case, two outstanding teacher leaders from Allen Park High School, Judy Wycoff and Amy West, promoted our work to their principal and fellow teachers.”
Tucker accepted the 2013 Business Partner Award on Feb. 12.
The Writing Project has been funded on three main grants provided by the National Writing Project that are being terminated in June 2013.
