Teachers Wrap Up Writing Institute

Posted: Updated:

Even though school is out for the summer, teachers from all over the region have spent the better part of July preparing for next school year through the Northern Plains Writing Project program.

11 educators converged at Minot State University to learn how they can become better writers, and then pass that on to children in their classrooms.

The unique thing about this program is that it's teachers teaching other educators.

 (Kimar Gartman, Workshop Co-Facilitator and MSU employee) "The networking is a big thing. Just the corroboration we have, and the ability to sit and talk about our profession, and to share ideas, and to be involved with other professionals. It's a phenomenal experience."

Participating students, learn new writing techniques through discussion and peer review, which can be very humbling.

(Jesse Radzwill, Workshop Student and Mohall Teacher) "We all like to think we are the best at our profession, and it should only be done this way, and seeing 13 people do what I do, and seeing them do it differently than I do is good I think. You can bring something away from the program and bring it right to your classroom."

The teachers will travel to Washington D.C. in November for a national conference that will further strengthen K-12 classrooms.
