Topic: Designing Frameworks that Connect Cultures in Literature Classrooms as a 20 minute presentation

Based on my book entitled The Fourth R, I create frameworks that connect cultures. Students possess qualities of memory based upon human every day experiences similar to those experiences within literary works they read. I play pod casts of sample student essays that show how students recall events or conditions based upon the relationship of reading to memory. One of my students recalls her own beliefs in mercy killing and relates her heritage based upon family and cultural beliefs in the right to life. Students use life story writing next to recount experiences that may help them find thesis.

Thank you for your proposal submission for the Annual Lilly Conference on College and University Teaching ? DC, to be held May 31st through June 3rd, 2012.

I am pleased to inform you that your proposal "Designing Frameworks that Connect Cultures in Literature Classrooms" has been accepted as a 20- minute presentation. Due to the large number of proposals for concurrent sessions and poster presentations submitted this year, we were able to accommodate only 77% of applicants? primary requests following a peer, blind review process. Proposals came from 34 different states and 10 different countries. Therefore, it is noteworthy that your proposal was accepted.

Besides political functions, keynote speakers address audiences at academic conferences, and usually speak at high school and college conferences.

Maryann DiEdwardo is a certified instructor of Taiji

Taiji originated in the 16th century in China, but the exercises were simplified in 1956 which made
this sport even more popular.
Taiji is often practiced as an important part of the healing process
in hospitals and has proved as extraordinarily succesful in healing
high blood pressure, neuratenia and lung tubercolosis.
