The daylong events included sessions by top educators on classroom management strategies, passion for teaching and more. The students were joined by Maureen Kincaid, associate professor and chair of education, and Geraldine Crider, director of the Teach First Program. “This was a wonderful professional opportunity for our students, especially since it was a national conference,” said Kincaid.

The a cappella jazz and pop group Take 6 comes to Wentz Concert Hall for a performance at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20. The fine arts department has announced a 25 percent discount in ticket prices for faculty and staff. New prices are $30 and $23; call 630-637-SHOW (7469) to reserve your seat. With its roots in gospel, doo-wop and the sophisticated jazz-influenced singing groups of mid-century America (such as the Hi-Los), Take 6 is both a throwback to an earlier, more genteel era of American music and a precursor for a number of black male pop groups of the 1990s, most notably Boyz II Men.
