The Expository Writing Program and Critical Classrooms invites you to join Teacher Talk, Friday, May 21st from 3:00-4:15 titled: "Syllabus Signals: Understanding How Disabled Students Interpret Syllabi" facilitated by Dr. Neil Simpkins from UW Bothell's School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences.

For many disabled students, discussing disability accommodations with faculty is a complex rhetorical process. In this teacher talk, Neil Simpkins will discuss how students strategically use syllabi to prepare for disability conversations with instructors, particularly in relation to writing assignments. Bring your syllabus to frame a collaborative discussion about crafting syllabi that encourage students to discuss their disability access needs!
