Teacher Safari 2022 - What's Right About Writing!

Join us at Rolling Hills Zoo for Teacher Safari 2022! It's the “WRITE” thing to do!  


Writing is an authentic, real-world process that students use in every aspect of their lives from completing school work, to employment, to texting and posting, and beyond. Writing provides opportunities for student reflection and creation.


Participants will learn writing ideas that are thought-provoking, standards-based, and teacher-guided while implementing student voice and choice.


Register for July 20 and 21 at go.smokyhill.org/safari for this valuable and fun opportunity!
