Dear SCTE members,

Off the Page, Into the World:
Writing for Authentic Audiences
October 21, 2017 from 8:30-3:00

Join us for a day of workshops on teaching writing for real-world audiences. Stenhouse author Mark Overmeyer will model how to engage students in peer response modeled after a real-world writer's workshop; a panel of working folks will capture how writing works in their respective careers; experienced teachers will explore this theme in workshops, including how to use a real-world mentor text in the classroom.
Registration flyers will go out in late August—hope to see you there!
