Math and science teachers throughout Kentucky are invited to register for the third annual Purchase Area Writing Project conference on September 27 at the Murray State University Curris Center. The conference theme is "A Kaleidoscope: Writing Across the Curriculum." Elementary and middle school writing project teachers will offer presentations on writing in mathematics (4th grade) and science (6th and 8th); and high school teachers will provide helpful writing strategies for practical living and science classes. The conference will also feature speakers with specialties in songwriting (Neil Brewer of Eight O'Clock Eye), social studies (Dr. Duane Bolin, MSU professor and author), and drama (Ms.Constance Alexander, award-winning author and teacher).
The conference offers an excellent opportunity for teachers to acquire practical, classroom-tested strategies for incorporating writing-to-learn activities in content-area subjects.
