The University of Mississippi’s Center for Writing and Rhetoric will host its second annual Transitioning to College Writing symposium for high school and college teachers on Friday and Saturday.

The symposium’s focus is to help teachers from local high schools, community colleges and others in the area understand what academic writing entails at The University of Mississippi. It will also allow teachers to exchange ideas that they can take back to the classroom and discuss how to meet the needs of students to improve their writing.

The University of Mississippi Center for Writing and Rhetoric will hosts its first Transitioning to College Writing symposium to discuss writing challenges students face when they enter the college classroom.
“The focus is to bring together high school and the community college teachers so they can communicate with us, and so we can learn more about what they are doing in the classroom and we can explain what we’re doing in the first year composition,” Robert Cummings, director of the center, said.
