Congratulations to URCAD presenter Angelika Albertorio, winner of the URCAD Selfie Contest Grand Prize in the category: Best Selfie with the Number "25" in it!
Angelika will receive a $250 gift card to the UMBC Bookstore!
We loved Angelika's DIY style- in the age of online, she took it back to the sidewalk, and chalked for the cause!
MotionWriters, a learning program created by Assistant Professor Ann Sofie Clemmensen and Dance/English Literature major, Angelika Albertorio seeks to address this problem by implementing a multimodal teaching approach that engages practicing English grammar through the involvement of the moving body. Inspired by the choreographic process, MotionWriters guides participants through a creative process structured around the creation and continuous revision of a fictional narrative. The community aspect of this program, coupled with the creative approach to English language and grammar, hopes to make for an interactive experience for students and inspire confidence for their future educational endeavors.
This work was funded, in part, by the Alex Brown Center for Entrepreneurship URA.
