Several influential panelists from Ridgewood on Tuesday will be weighing in on the language arts skills they feel students will need to hone in the 21st century.
On Nov. 27 at the Education Center, the district's Curriculum Communication Committee will be hosting best-selling author Harlan Coben, former New York Times reporter and editor Alan Finder, Franklin Templeton portfolio manager Donald Taylor, and college essay tutor/college art professor Nadia Tscherny.
The group, according to the district, will explore:
- "What skills, attitudes and pursuits in the Language Arts literacies of reading, writing, listening, speaking or viewing have benefitted you in your professional life?
- How might schools best create learning experiences that foster success in using the Language Arts literacies in students’ lives and in their future careers?"
The discussion will run from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Parents and students are encouraged to attend the free event.
