Professional development opportunities for middle and high school teachers held at Oregon State University in Corvallis. Lodging and meals are included and participants will receive a stipend.

English/Language Arts and Social Studies Teachers

July 29 - August 1, 2019
The Oregon Writing Project’s curriculum development institute hones teachers’ capacities to create curriculum from the ground up. During this four-day course, teachers build a grade-level unit to use in the upcoming year. Participants will leave this workshop with a draft of a curriculum unit, which embeds literacy and history standards throughout—depending on the content area.

This work is available for graduate continuing education credit, not for degree-applicable credit: CEED 823, 2 semester credits, $700 total. Teachers who choose to earn credit for these four days will receive a grade slip to verify their work, and the grade will appear on a Lewis & Clark transcript. For TSPC 2 semester credits = 60 PDUs.

All other teachers (those not paying for credit) will receive a TSPC PDU certificate for 30 clock hours of professional development.
