Teaching in a Two-Year College: Endless Possibilities.
Starr, Al
Teaching at Essex Community College in Maryland has offered several English instructors endless possibilities for program development. Two such public programs developed by one instructor are "The Why of Sports" and the Creative Writing Forum. The former involved six programs and an art exhibit showing the connections between sports and the humanities and arts, and the latter is an annual 2-day event including a public reading by a nationally known writer and a series of workshops by local creative writers for selected high school and community college students and teachers. The former program was funded by the college. The latter project was rotated between Essex and 2 other schools, with a steering committee chosen from the 3 community colleges and representatives from Baltimore County (Maryland) schools. Each year each of the 23 county high schools chooses 3 student representatives to participate. Over the 10 years the Forum has existed, the featured writers have done a wonderful job working with the students. (CR)
