EdCamp EMWP: Total Contact Literacy

By Karen Chichester

EMWP is hosting our first ever EdCamp on October 24, 2015 in Pray-Harrold (8am-4:30pm). The theme is Total Contact Literacy and yes, there will be prizes. Registration is free to all who want to attend. Breakfast will be provided.

What is an EdCamp?

EdCamps embody the NWP principle “Teachers, Teaching Teachers.” Edcamps are innovative, participant-driven professional learning opportunities. No two are the same. The learning that stems from the EdCamp format provides opportunities for every attendee to share ideas or questions. Everyone, whether a teacher, parent, or student is encouraged to participate by leading a conversation, asking a question, or sharing an idea. Time is built into the schedule for continuing discussions over lunch and between sessions.

What’s special about EdCamp EMWP?

Are you presenting at MCTE or NCTE and want to give your presentation and dry run? EdCamp EMWP is the place. Additionally, there will be one room set aside for Sacred Writing Time.
