Forging Connections In The High School
And College English Classroom

April 3, 1992

The fifth-annual Computers and English Conference
for high school and college teachers of writing

Sponsored by the Program in English
New York Institute of Technology
The Assembly on Computers in English (ACE) an NCTE Assembly

The 1992 conference on Literature, Computers and Writing explores the
shared challenges facing high school and college teachers of English in
the electronic classroom. There are two primary themes:

o how computers and specifically networks can be used to ally high
school and college teachers of English, and

o how computers are stimulating new ways of thinking about
communication, critical literacy, and writing.

The conference features panel discussions led by high school and
college teachers offering insight and pedagogical techniques for the
English classroom as well as access to and training in electronic
messaging via NYIT's computer system.

Conference Setting

The NYIT conference's morning sessions will be held at the beautiful de
Seversky Conference Center, a Georgian mansion next to the college's
Old Westbury campus. Included in the conference's price are a
pre-conference and post-conference account on NYIT's networked computer
system, coffee breaks, and a gourmet, buffet luncheon prepared by the
professional de Seversky staff. Afternoon sessions will convene on the
campus of the college at Harry Schure Hall, which offers computerized
classrooms. The quiet Long Island setting is less than one hour from
both the LaGuardia and Islip airports and just minutes from two Long
Island Railroad stations. Contact the English Department (see
registration form) for information about housing.
