ENGL 285: Writers on Writing, Winter 2019, VLPA course. Open to everyone

Writers on Writing has been offered for 10 years now to great success but this is the first time I’ll be taking the helm and I’m very excited. It fulfills VLA credit, and introduces students to the UW creative writing faculty and other local writers of all types. It is open to EVERYONE, whether they want to go on to study English or Creative Writing or are just curious about how writers produce their work.

Although it is a large class (up to 100 students), we will meet in an active learning classroom. Each class session will feature a reading or talk, a Q&A, and then a chance for students to do some in-class writing, participate in small group discussions or other activities, or read and comment on each other’s writing.

For more information, please contact Maya Sonenberg at mayas.

STUDIO- Community Service Learning and VLPA/I&S credit Opportunity

STUDIO is an exciting opportunity for undergraduate students to get involved in the local Seattle community by working with youths in after-school program. It counts as VLPA or I&S credits for undergraduate students.

Past undergrads have said that it was one of the best experiences that they had in UW, because they felt a sense of belongingness learning together with youths and other undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds. I attached flyers, and videos including course registration information. Undergraduates do not have to be STEM major to participate in STUDIO. Below is our video about the program.

Winter 2019 – QSCI 497 Special Topics: Agent Based Modelling

Q SCI 497 Special Topics in Quantitative Science: Agent Based Modelling (4 credits)
Winter 2019
Mondays & Wednesdays, 10:30am – 12:20pm
Instructor: Dr. Andrew Berdahl, berdahl

Agent-based models (aka individual-based models) provide a flexible framework for creating simple representations of complex phenomena in the life, social and physical sciences. In this play-based course we will learn to design, build and perform computational experiments using agent-based models. Along the way you will learn useful programming and data visualization skills.

Winter 2019 – FISH 511A Special Topics: Historical Ecology

FISH 511: HISTORICAL ECOLOGY

WINTER 2019
Wednesdays, 1:30-3:30pm, discussion course
Instructor: Chelsea Wood

Long-term data are vital for developing realistic management baselines; unfortunately, these data are exceedingly rare. Scientists and managers who are interested in understanding an ecosystem within its historical context have had to get creative in order to derive reliable data on past ecosystems states. In this course, we will survey the variety of creative approaches that historical ecologists take to obtain data about the past. We will discuss the use of ship’s logs, fisheries landings records, naturalist’s accounts, living persons’ memories, family photographs, museum specimens, maps, seafood menus, and more. Our approach will be to read and discuss the fundamental papers for each method, with the goal of equipping students to use established historical ecology methods and derive new methods for their ecosystem of interest.

Interdisciplinary Sea Level Rise Course for Undergrads –Winter ATMS/ESS/OCN 475

ATMS/ESS/OCN 475 is the required capstone course for the climate minor, but is also open to all undergrads who have familiarity with the science of climate change (i.e. ESS 201, ATMS 211) or permission of the instructor. May be taken for W credit.

Sea Level Rise: the science and impacts

ATMO S/OCEAN/ESS 475 (3 credits) Current Research in Climate Science

Instructor: LuAnne Thompson (Oceanography)
Tuesday/Thursday 3:30-4:50, OCN 425.

Global warming has resulted in over 20 cm of sea level rise since 1900. The rate of rise has accelerated over the previous two decades and future projections suggest that there is much more to come. In this seminar, we will explore what we know about what controls sea level rise over a variety of time and space scales. In addition, we will examine how sea level rise is expected to impact human and natural systems.

Every Tuesday undergraduates enrolled in the course will attend seminars by sea level rise experts and are expected to prepare for those seminars with weekly required reading. In addition, each student will focus on one aspect of sea level rise that is of interest to them and complete a series of assignments that will enable the student to hone their skills in written communication for a variety of audiences.

Prerequisites: familiarity with the science of climate change (i.e. ESS 201, ATMS 211) or permission of the instructor. May be taken for W credit.

Pipeline Project Winter Quarter Opportunities

Tutor at an elementary, middle or high school in Seattle during Winter 2019 Quarter!

The UW Pipeline Project recruits, trains and places UW students as volunteer tutors in Seattle schools and community organizations. We are recruiting tutors for Winter quarter to work with about 40 different schools, and would love to have you! We’ll help you get set up tutoring in a K-12 classroom or community organization. Tutors make a minimum commitment of 2-3 hours per week for at least one quarter.

The schedule is flexible: schools need tutors Mon-Fri between 7:30 and 5pm. And we offer transportation to some of our partner schools that have the highest need for tutors.

Take an EDUC 401 Inner Pipeline Seminar Class for Credit:

Participate in a weekly Pipeline seminar and tutor for at least 2.5 hours a week at a Seattle school or community organization! All of our courses are Credit/No Credit, are I & S credits, and are listed under EDUC 401. The number of credits a student receives depends on the number of tutoring hours completed in addition to seminar attendance. 3 credits: weekly seminar and tutor 2-3 hours per week. Seminars are a fantastic opportunity to learn about issues in public education and tutoring strategies, while reflecting and learning from your tutoring site.

EDUC 401 Seminar Spotlights:

EDUC 401I: Teaching English Language Learners

Tuesdays from 10:30-11:50am

Within the past decade, English Language Learners (ELLs) have increased by over 50% in the U.S. It is important that future educators learn how to linguistically and culturally respond to the students’ needs. Through this seminar, students will learn about challenges that ELLs face in the classroom and learn instructional strategies to help increase learning comprehension. They will also have the opportunity to reflect on their own tutoring experiences.

EDUC 401M: Tutoring Math and Science in K-12

Mondays from 4:30-5:50pm

In this seminar, students explore the world of math and science in K-12 schools by attending seminars that focus on current educational topics and tutoring at one of Pipeline’s partner schools. A key feature of the course is the opportunity to reflect on and share tutoring experiences in order to gain advice, suggestions, and pointers. Several seminars are devoted to best practices for science and math tutoring. The seminar also includes readings and discussion of critical topics in K-12 science and math education. Through the lens of social justice, this course will include conversation and critique of the social, political and economic factors that affect STEM education.

EDUC 401L: Challenges and Opportunities in K-12 Education

Wednesdays from 5:00-6:20pm

Participants in this seminar will explore the world of public education through weekly seminars and a tutoring practicum experience in local K-12 schools or community organizations. Both components will allow students to engage in critical reflection on some of the current issues in education at three different levels: local, national, and international.
