Writing in Science Summer Intensive

This 3-day summer writing intensive on June 10-12, 2018 at Fairmont Hot Springs is to provide Montana educators with a community of learners, writers, and practitioners in writing and science. This workshop will offer resources for implementing the new Montana Content Standards for Science, as well as incorporating the MT Content Standards for English Language Arts. Educators will leave with a new perspective on integrating IEFA throughout the curricular areas, while using writing to connect ourselves, our students, and our communities to the content. The workshop is free! (Participants pay their own lodging.) Applicable to all grade levels. Registration limited to the first 30, so register now!
