I'm applying for a summer writing program at University of Texas at Arlington (just a mile from our house). If accepted, I receive a scholarship for six graduate hours tuition in Literacy Studies and books. "To examine the theory, research, practice, and challenges of teaching writing, while at the same time honing their own writing skills and developing their leadership abilities." Not a bad deal, eh? My five year Texas educator's license expires May 2008, so I need to get some more hours in order to renew it through 2013. The writing program runs from July 9th to August 9th, Monday through Thursday from 9 to 3.
