Opportunities for Research and Publishing on College-Ready Writing
NCTE member Peter H. Khost of Stony Brook University offers two rewarding opportunities to work with the Framework for Success in Postsecondary Writing: (1) be a paid facilitating instructor ($100-150 stipends) on an IRB-approved Framework-related research study that Khost is conducting in high school senior English courses and in associate’s and bachelor’s college writing courses in fall 2015 (take this short survey to determine your eligibility), and (2) submit a manuscript for NCTE’s English Journal column that Khost edits called “Reframing Readiness,” which seeks to promote the Framework for Success as an advocacy tool in debates about college-ready writing.
