Writers in the Schools (WITS) teams with the Harris County Department of Education Teaching and Learning Center to present “Teachers, WRITE!” The 4th annual workshop will be held virtually this year on Dec. 15 and focuses on boosting teaching abilities in our new and changing educational landscape.
The two-part workshop begins with “Diving In: Incorporating Empathy in Social and Emotional Learning” and “The Writer’s Way,” designed to deepen the practice of teachers as writers and offer useful ways to cultivate the habits of a writer.
“Teachers WRITE!” is led by two authors who work within WITS and is designed for teachers in all grade levels and content areas. The workshop uses writing as a tool to connect and build community with students.
Cost is $75 for in-county educators and $88 for out-of-county. Registration: https://tinyurl.com/y4a5k9z6
