NHIDA mourns the passing of William Van Cleave in April 2021. William was a friend to NHIDA, presenting at our Annual Conference in 2017 and again, virtually with Jan Wasowicz, in September 2020. As Jan wrote of William on SpellTalk, "Syntax has lost its exclamation point."
We remember William with great fondness and appreciation for his genius, his wit, and his generosity in teaching us. In memory of William, we include his 3/16/2020 webinar for The PaTTAN Literacy Symposium titled Syntax Matters: The Link Between Sentence Writing and Sentence Comprehending.
