Writing in the School Garden Workshop Series

October 5, 2013 | 9am - 3pm

This professional development training will equip K-12 teachers from multiple disciplines with the tools they need to utilize Common Core Language Arts/Writing Standards in their outdoor classroom. Lessons that teach creative, persuasive, and informative writing will be modeled, and lesson plans will be distributed to participants. Throughout the series, content will build on the previous workshop, and small assignments will be distributed to encourage teachers to integrate materials into their own classroom and school. As part of this series, participants will become Project Learning Tree certified, and will receive their own copy of the Project Learning Tree activity guide. This training is a series of three workshops.

Participants must attend all THREE workshops.  Deadline to register is October 4: to register please contact John Cawood:
