Teacher as Writer 

January 21 - May 12, 2023

Being a teacher and finding time to write is hard, but OWP is here to help.      

If you are looking to re-ignite a writing habit or searching for support for your current writing project, this class is for you. Join Tammy Bundy, OWP teacher and award-winning author, as you participate in a writing community where you will generate writing, build your writing skills, share with a writing group, and be inspired as both a writer and a teacher to publish your words.

Class meets online throughout the semester with synchronous meetings at VOALC on January 21, February 18, and April 22. March will have an online meeting.

 This hybrid workshop is online and at Miami's Voice of America Learning Center

 Three graduate credits. 

Fostering Student Discussion

March 4 & 5, 2023

Is your classroom ever silent when you hope for lively and thoughtful discussions? Is your discussion toolbox in need of new strategies? 

As teachers, we know the power of conversation and understand that talk is a productive piece of reading and writing but now more than ever, discussions often seem hard. Join OWP and other K-12 teachers as we explore resources and practices to raise the quality of discussion in the classroom. You will read professional voices around student-centered talk, practice strategies for leading and supporting whole-class, small-group, and peer-to-peer discussions, and intentionally plan for successful student-led conversations and discussions about reading and writing.

at Miami’s Voice of America Learning Center

One graduate credit.
