Language Arts Conference
Now in its third decade, the Language Arts Conference brings together the faculty of the Division of English and Applied Linguistics and the School of Education faculty. Together, they plan a program packed with dynamic speakers, creative workshops, insightful presentations, and vigorous discussions to enrich the teaching of literacy and reading across the spectrum of academia.
Spearheaded by Dr. Clarisa Quan, every year since 1993 during the first week in November, the Conference has brought together teachers and administrators from all over Micronesia to discuss frontline theory and issues surrounding the language arts. The conference puts literacy and reading in the spotlight and provides opportunities for information exchange among teachers.
The attendees exchange information about methods that work in our multilingual and multicultural classrooms and are inspired by language arts scholars, such as Dr. Nancy Updegraff, consultant for Houghton/Mifflin, who enchanted the attendees with among other things, her pink boa act.
The Conferences’ sponsors include the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, the International Reading Association, the Guam Council, and the Guam Marriott and Spa.
