I am a high school English teacher in Virginia, and I received a scholarship from College Board to attend the Advanced Placement (AP) English Language training/ conference at The College of William and Mary. Teachers from all over the United States attended this training. AP Language is a subject that revolves around using rhetoric, and students who receive a 3 or higher are potentially able to receive three college English credit hours.

With that said, I brought up the UNCG Speaking Center website as a resource for finding information on rebuttals, the Toulmin model, Monroe’s Motivated Sequence, etc. The AP consultant/teacher of 22 years/AP presenter/former debate coach went back to his hotel, reviewed the website, and he informed teachers that they SHOULD DEFINITELY use the website and that the website is EXCELLENT!!

My storytelling colleagues and I were delighted last week with the wonderful workshop that you and your students put on for us. We were most impressed by both the content that you wove so naturally into the brief one hour and the very successful interactive ways in which you brought out the main points. Bravo! Bravo!

On behalf of The Arc of Greensboro, I would like to thank you and your staff for working with us to complete the Power Point presentation. The Power Point presentation was used at the 50th Anniversary Celebration/Annual Meeting at the UNCG Elliott Center on October 14, 2003. The Power Point presentation is a display of 50 years of historical memories in the form of pictures and text

Students Jennifer Moss and Sarah Wilde did an excellent job of pulling the scanned materials together. The end product is a wonderful visual experience that was enjoyed by the 200 attendees at the 50th Anniversary/Annual Meeting. Invited guests of the celebration included members and friends of The Arc of Greensboro, including Senator William Martin, County Commissioner Mary Rakeshaw, former Mayor Carolyn Allen, Dr. and Mrs. Kraus, Dr. and Mrs. Hassell, Dr. J. Weiss, several UNCG faculty and Board members, and many other community friends. The Arc of Greensboro plans to have the presentation available for viewing at several community functions including during the United Way campaign.

The Power Point presentation is a great asset to The Arc of Greensboro. This visual reminder of the past 50 years would not be possible without the services that have been provided through the University Speaking Center. The Arc of Greensboro looks forward to working with Kim Cuny and her staff on other projects that will enhance the agency’s ability to meet the needs of 424,032 citizens with developmental and other associated disabilities living in the Guilford County area.
