NDCL educators present at state conference
Last weekend five NDCL educators were among the featured presenters at the Ohio Council of Teachers of English Language Arts Annual Conference in Columbus.



EXCELLENCE ON THE ROAD: English Department Chairperson Mrs. Beth Walsh-Moorman leads a session at the Ohio Council of Teachers of English Language Annual Conference in Columbus last weekend.


Technology coach Ms. Giovanna Orlando, English teachers Ms. Victoria Frabotta and Miss Katie Ours, and English Department Chairperson Mrs. Beth Walsh-Moorman shared how they have integrated technology into Socratic seminars—thought-provoking, open-ended formal discussions based on specific texts.

In another session, Mrs. Walsh-Moorman and media specialist Mrs. Amy Myers presented NDCL's innovative Framework for Information and Research Skills for Today and Tomorrow (FIRSTT), a research and information literacy curriculum for freshmen. FIRSTT involves collaboration between the media specialist and subject-area teachers to teach and embed research and information skills as students complete their regular class assignments.

More than 250 educators from across Ohio, including the entire NDCL English Department, attended the conference.
