More than 120 teachers from five area counties participated in a recent two-day workshop on multiple intelligences held at and sponsored by West Virginia University at Parkersburg.
Leading the sessions was nationally known cooperative learning and multiple intelligences trainer Laurie Kagan. Faculty members and WVU Parkersburg pre-service teachers from Wood, Jackson, Pleasants, Ritchie and Roane counties attended the workshop, coordinated by Cindy Kelley, WVU Parkersburg, associate professor of education.
"The workshop was designed to offer meaningful and practical professional development to area teachers with the ultimate goal to increase achievement levels of students in the public schools," Ms. Kelley noted.
The sessions were funded by a grant as part of the Education Divisionís Partnerships Project and were the first of several on-going activities to be sponsored by WVU Parkersburgís recently established Center for Teaching Innovation.
