Summer Writing Sessions

Ruth Culham and Linda Hoyt are coming to LISD!

2 Authors - 2 Trainings - New Resources for Teachers

Campus Administrators,

We are excited to bring Ruth Culham and Linda Hoyt to LISD this summer to lead two amazing professional learning opportunities. Along with their expertise in the area of writing, we are purchasing their resources for your campus which will be integrated into our curriculum for teachers to use throughout the year.

We were strategic in selecting the grade levels who would receive the training and resources in our effort to address the needs of our learners. With this in mind, we need your help! Please select teachers to represent your campus by attending the trainings. This will count as their August trade day. Once the teachers have agreed to attend, simply click on the Google form below and provide their names. We’ll register the teachers in Eduphoria! The specifics for each date are listed below, along with a short video provided by Linda Hoyt inviting teachers to join her!
