Use the outdoors to engage students and inspire the reading and writing process. Taking our classes outside on school grounds provides the opportunity for an immersive and inspired literacy experience. Activities provided are intended to be integrated into an existing balanced literacy model. Examples of activities include practicing use of sensory and figurative language, using observations for informational writing, word choice exercises, creating group poetry, and much more. The workshop will include time to apply new techniques to their existing plans and share ideas with others, and a variety of ready-to-use activities will be supplied so teachers can integrate relevant lessons right away.

Graduate credit through UW-Stevens Point available. Contact the WCEE at WCEE@uwsp.edu or 715-346-4818 for information on tuition costs and registration.

Please see the attached flyer for more information and additional courses in the series.
