Dr. Peggie Jelks, associate professor of curriculum and instruction at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, was selected to attend the spring session of the Oxford Round Table at Manchester College in the University of Oxford in England March 23-28.
Jelks, who took part in a Round Table Discussion, is one of only 35 persons selected for Round Table membership and the only delegate from Louisiana.
The Oxford Round Table provides a forum for the study and consideration of current issues facing state and national systems of education and to consider major issues in contemporary education policy in the United States, the United Kingdom and other selected countries.
Participants were invited for their potential to make significant contributions to the Round Table discussions. This year's annual session will focus on early childhood education and will include such topics as early literacy instruction: research and practice; early literacy: connecting assessment and instruction; the learning link: literacy skills and the fine arts; and administration and supervision solutions: emergent literacy program.
