Poverty Simulations for Spring 2015
Faculty from the Watson College will provide two Poverty Simulations during the spring semester to help pre-service teachers build the skills and competencies needed to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse population of students.
This is the fifth year the program has been offered. To date, more than 1,500 UNCW students and community members have participated in the simulation, which provides an opportunity to get a glimpse into some of the challenges families living in poverty face every day.
Spring simulations will be offered on Wednesday, February 25 and Thursday, March 19. Both events will be held in Room 162 from 5:30 – 8 p.m.
Twenty volunteers are needed for each simulation. Students who have already participated are eligible to volunteer. Register here as a participant or volunteer.
The PDS fall/winter newsletter is complete and can be viewed at http://www.uncw.edu/ed/pds/documents/FallNewsletter2014.pdf.
As a reminder, the PDS office continues to send Friday Updates to our school partners every other week via email. If you have items you would like to share during the spring semester, please contact Somer Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Watson Meetings and Events for 2014-2015
Watson Research Group Meetings
The Watson Research Group would like to invite you to take part in our monthly WCE research group meetings! We want to encourage you that we provide a support group for educational research in any area at any stage. For example, we have helped each other improve study designs and instruments, look at data, work on paper drafts for submission, and work through revisions for resubmission. We have also put together conference proposals and shared information about journal issues and so forth. It's an hour well spent.
- Wednesday, December 3, 12:30-1:30, EB 385
Please consider joining us to (1) find resources and support with your research agenda and (2) offer the same to colleagues here in Watson.
All faculty, staff, students and community members are invited to join us for lunchtime presentations throughout our fall and spring semesters.
Light refreshments will be provided. For more information, call the Dean's Office at 910-962-3354.
