Color Your Classwork, Scribble Your School!

Grid of coloring image samples
Substantial educational research shows improved retention from combining different learning modalities. Coloring books can combine visual with tactile, and are used in a variety of academic disciplines and at every level, even grad school. With the tools discussed in this workshop, you can convert images to coloring sheets for students or marketing; create public service and outreach projects; or to develop other creative work for health and personal use.

Café Shapiro: Poems & Short Stories

Some of the University of Michigan's best undergraduate student writers read from their creative works. Students are nominated by their professors, and many of the students have also been nominated for various writing prizes within the University and beyond. For many student writers, Café Shapiro is a first opportunity to read publicly from their work. For others, it provides a fresh audience, and the chance to experience the work of students they may not encounter in writing classes. Join us for an evening of sharing at this 19th annual Café Shapiro:

He presents his research and then suggests several adjustments to language teaching that integrate social factors into L2 pronunciation pedagogy.
