Educator to Discuss Violent Writing in the Classroom at AB-Tech

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

ASHEVILLE, NC – Education expert Dr. Lori Brown will present the seminar, “Violent Writing in the Classroom: Proper Preparedness and Response” at 3 p.m. Oct. 27 in the Ferguson Auditorium on A-B Tech’s Asheville campus. The seminar is free and open to the public.

Brown conducted extensive, independent research on violent writing in academic settings to explore the frequency of violent texts, teacher responses and perceived teacher preparedness. Her work concluded that comprehensive school responses to violent writing must consider the instructor’s input, and refrain from either a “zero tolerance” or a “one size fits all” response to violent student expressions. Brown is currently employed by Buncombe County Schools and received her Doctorate in Education from Western Carolina University.
