The NYCWP will offer a Connected Learning Open Institute exploring the ways that teachers can engage students in connected learning, particularly through participation in Letters to the Next President 2.0, a program developed by National Writing Project educators. Letters to the Next President 2.0 will engage middle and high school students with the issues in this November’s election and support them as they engage with other teens across the country as they research, write, and make media to voice their opinions on the issues that matter most to them.
This is a hybrid class, which means that there will be an online component in addition to the in-person sessions. Participants should be prepared to engage online for about one hour outside of course time. This PL will be documented alongside the in-person sessions for those who work under New York State licenses that require 175 hours of PL every five years.
If you are an administrator who would like to pay for a teacher or group using a purchase order, please email email@example.com for information as to how to proceed.
