Mottolese leads presentation at innovation and collaboration conference
This past June, Dr. William Mottolese, Chair of the Department of English, presented at the “2019 PLATO Conference: Innovation and Collaboration” at Rollins College in Orlando, Florida. Sacred Heart Greenwich emphasizes the importance of faculty and staff professional development and its power to strengthen the School's programs and the vibrancy of the institution. Each year, the events at Come Home for Christmas support the Faculty and Staff Professional Development Fund. The Fund makes speaking opportunities, attending conferences and more possible for school employees.
Dr. Mottolese’s talk was entitled “Philosophy and the Teaching of Writing in the High School Classroom.” In his talk, he spoke about the conventions of teaching philosophical writing in the high school classroom and how that writing complements and enhances an English/Language Arts program. PLATO is the Philosophy Learning and Teaching Organization and is dedicated to teaching philosophy on the pre-college level. Dr. Mottolese has been a member of PLATO for several years and serves on its national Education Committee.
