  • Dacquino to Present at BOCES Master Class Dec. 7 at BOCES
    December 7, 2022

    The plan is for editors to receive students’ writing prior to the editing sessions to allow time to read and review their drafts for Dec. 7, 2022 at BOCES Center in Yorktown.  Each editor will work with 3-4 students for 30-minute conferences.  The time frame of the Master Class would be from 8am-2:15pm. Editors will be working with students from approximately 9:30am-1:00pm with a 30-minute break for lunch.  Rather than a key-note speaker, editors will work with students on a small group writing activity from 1-1:45pm? Students will be specially selected by various school districts in the Westchester/Putnam area. Editors are chosen from various professional fields in writing.
