(Jan. 28, 2011)--The San Antonio Writing Project (SAWP) in the UTSA Department of Interdisciplinary Learning and Teaching will host the fifth annual "Conference on Writing and Learning Across the Curriculum, Pre K-College" from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 5 in Frio Street Building Room 1.406 at the UTSA Downtown Campus. With the theme "The Power of Story," the conference is free, but registration is required.

SAWP teacher consultants will provide teaching demonstrations and a variety of innovative ideas for incorporating writing into the classroom.

Three professional development credits will be offered through the UTSA Academy for Teacher Excellence. The keynote speaker will be James Munoz, KENS-TV reporter and author of the autography "Some Monument to Last."

Munoz has 13 years' experience in television news working across Texas at stations in Amarillo, Corpus Christi, Lufkin, San Angelo and San Antonio. He has reported on numerous events including the devastation of hurricanes Katrina, Ike and Bret, a mine explosion in Mexico and a hostage standoff involving now-retired Archbishop Patrick Flores. As one of his career highlights, Munoz cites interviewing CBS News legend Walter Cronkite in 2000. Munoz received a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism from Texas Tech University in 1997.

Founded in 2006, the San Antonio Writing Project is part of the National Writing Project with more than 200 sites across the United States. The program is designed to have teachers teaching best-practice writing to each other.

Free parking for the conference will be available in the UTSA parking lot across from the Frio Street Building and adjacent to the Pico de Gallo restaurant.
