The Plainfield LWV honors the late Herb Green
with its second annual forum on education Wednesday.
The late Herb Green was passionate about two things: education and the League of Women Voters (LWV), which he served as president. This Wednesday, the Plainfield chapter of the LWV honors his memory and contributions by offering the second annual Herbert Green Forum on Education.
The event will feature Dr. Arnold Glass, a professor of cognitive psychology at Rutgers University and longtime colleague of Herb's, who heads the university's Learning and Memory Laboratory. Dr. Glass is widely published in journals in his field, including the American Journal of Psychology, The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, and Memory and Cognition. Refreshments will be served following Dr. Glass' talk.
Dr. Glass will talk about why experimental research matters in education, particularly the role of feedback in instruction.
The League of Women Voters, a non-partisan political organization, encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

The forum will take place at 7:00 PM in the Anne Louise Davis Meeting Room at the Plainfield Public Library. The event is free and open to all. The Plainfield Public Library is at Park Avenue and West 8th Street and is an accessible facility. Parking is available in the 8th and 9th Street lots.
