b2ap3_thumbnail_12-19-Redd-essay.jpgFor Rea Redd, director of Waynesburg University’s Eberly Library, Civil War area history is more than a hobby or interest—it is a passion. And during the past two years, Redd has put his passion and expertise to use to produce a chapter in the recently published book of essays, “Turning Points of the American Civil War.”

Redd’s chapter, ‘The Point of No Return: Turning Points Within the 1864 Presidential Election and the Doom of the Confederacy,’ examines attitudes during the election for Lincoln’s second term, during the Civil War. Redd said that the process for publication took about two years.

“I worked on it nearly every evening and weekend for three months,” he said. “The editing process took a year and then another 12 months for its publication.”

Redd conducted extensive research to perfect his essay, and said it was a “learning experience.” He especially enjoyed the process of dealing with deadlines and revision.

“My favorite part was writing the drafts, sending them to the editors, receiving a prompt reply from them, making changes and sending it back very quickly to the editors,” said Redd. “There was a bit of suspense and a bit of a race to get it done correctly and quickly.”

In the past year, Redd has written another manuscript about Civil War medicine, as well as several fiction manuscripts that he hopes to develop and publish in the future. For more information about Redd’s writing, contact rredd@waynesburg.edu or call 724-852-3419.

b2ap3_thumbnail_12-4-NYT-Graph.jpgErica Chauvet co-authored the Nov. 14 edition of “What’s Going On in This Graph?,” a segment published by The New York Times.

“What’s Going On in This Graph?” is a new segment being run by The Times on the second Tuesday of each month, and is a spinoff of their weekly segment, “What’s Going On in This Picture?”

The segment features a graph that was previously published in The Times but with its entire context removed. Students then comment about what they notice and wonder and they describe what story they believe the graph is trying to tell.

Chauvet, part-time instructor for mathematics at Waynesburg University, moderated the comments and wrote the reveal and Stat Nuggets section along with Sharon Hessney, statistics content director at Mass Insight Education.

“I was recommended for this role by a friend of mine who I know from grading Advanced Placement Statistics exams,” said Chauvet. “As a moderator, I read the comments that students were posting in which they notice, wonder and tell the story they see in the graph. I replied to select student comments and asked questions designed to increase curiosity and critical thinking.”

Moderators, such as Chauvet, are selected to facilitate, encourage, and guide conversation regarding the graph from 9 a.m. through 2 p.m. A final reveal is posted the following Friday.

To view the Nov. 14 edition of “What’s Going On in This Graph?,” visit https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/14/learning/whats-going-on-in-this-graph-nov-14-2017.html.

Chauvet received her bachelor’s degree in mathematics with secondary education certification from Messiah College and her master’s degree in teaching secondary education mathematics from California University of Pennsylvania.

Founded in 1849 by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Waynesburg University is located on a traditional campus in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania, with three additional sites located in the Pittsburgh region.
