Conference Date: May 12, 2017
Interested in learning how to infuse creative activities into any curricular area? In this one-day conference, you will learn how to modify your existing lessons to promote your students’ creativity. After a quick overview of the process, you will have an opportunity to break into small workgroups to design and share activities with other K12 teachers across different subject areas. At the end of the day, you will come away with a deeper understanding of your own creativity, a set of creative activities tailored to your curriculum, and a recognition of how being a more creative teacher can result in more creative students.
