How can we build students' confidence in their own voices and global understandings -- especially in the middle of a pandemic? Words Without Borders invites you to discuss this and other questions at our next live-streaming meet-up: #TeaGlobally, Thursday October 29th at 5 pm Eastern.
Joined by professor, author, and translator Christi Merrill of the University of Michigan, we will be discussing her innovative approaches to engaging and motivating students (which include writing in response to the painting above!)
The National Day on Writing is October 20th! Sponsored by the National Council of Teachers of English the day provides an opportunity for students and educators to celebrate writing and the many reasons to engage in it.
Most students won’t grow up to become translators, so why should we teach translation? Gitanjali Patel and Jessie Spivey of Shadow Heroes, a UK-based organization that runs creative translation workshops for students, wrote an essay for Words Without Borders about the educational benefits of learning about translation.
