Wertime to Present Teaching Strategies to North Penn High School’s English Faculty

Dr. Richard Wertime, professor of English, has been invited by North Penn High School to return as a professional consultant to offer the members of its English Department a series of “refreshment seminars” on what the school, for the past 20 years of continuous use in its English classrooms, has referred to as the “Wertime Heuristic,” a strategy for helping writing students learn to understand how not to repeat the self-evident in the writing they do. On in-service days, in early December and then again in mid-February, Wertime will coach the entire English Department in the most effective means of presenting the heuristic to students so they can put it to immediate use in their writing.
