Do you need help making the case to attend our January teaching and leadership institute for K-12 educators, Curiosity Across the Curriculum: Pursuing Engagement, Literacy, and Action through Inquiry?
Time spent with colleagues in professional development away from school provides numerous benefits. But often, two huge barriers exist: finding funding and making the solid case to attend, telling the story of this kind of experience. We hope these pieces of information might give you the tools you need to attend this year.
- Some schools may find funding from Title I Part A; Title II Part A and B; Title III Part A; Title V Part A; and Title VII Part A to help fund professional development.
- Harvey "Smokey" Daniels has spent much of his career conducting these type of learning events and has assembled a dream-team faculty to join him in this annual institute. Smokey wrote this letter for you (available for download below) to share with administrators as you advocate for yourself and colleagues to participate in this year's multi-day institute.
This year, along with Smokey, you will learn from Sara Ahmed, Nancy Steineke, Kristin Ziemke, and Chad Everett. This will be an experience that transforms teaching for sure!
