Shirley's resume

Shirley A. Regis

EXPERIENCED EDUCATOR at the college level and anything else.

…dedicated to instructing students in the importance of the written word.
SUMMARY OF QUALIFICATIONS
Over the past thirteen years, I have taught writing and college level writing to a very diverse group of students. The students that I teach come from many different backgrounds, such as, learning disabled, English as a second language, middle class, and first generation college students. One of the things that I do is teach students to be excited about writing through the process and in-class activities. I also teach grammar, syntax, spelling, and structure by illustrating how to use them in class activities and through out of class assignments. It is extremely important to show students the importance of solid writing within the real world.

ASSOCIATIONS AND TRAINING
Chaffey College FLEX Professional Development- “The ‘Flipped’ Approach- [Re]design for Learner Centered Instruction.
professional development activity consisted of using video to help with teaching. The video would distribute lecture in the classroom and using LMS systems, such as, Moodle and Blackboard. In turn, the students would spend more time doing coursework in the classroom and less time listening to lecture. This would afford the instructor more time for learning and application.
Chaffey College Department of Language Arts Reading and Writing Curriculum Training. The training consists of learning to teach reading and writing combination courses. During the training instructors learn how to incorporate more critical reading skills and tools, such as, annotation into their coursework. The tools are then taught to the students, so that they can increase their reading retention and use it to help them with their writing skills.
