Writing for Teacher Advocacy and Professional Practice

Please join us on April 12th for a workshop on tips and strategies for developing your voice as an educational advocate led by educational blogger Jessica Keigan. This interactive session will focus on developing your voice and writing style for personalized-professional writing and then ways to match your purpose to the appropriate publication venues. Come ready to share stories about your classroom and learn about how powerful these stories can be in influencing and shaping the system. 

Jessica Keigan teaches English language arts at Horizon High School in Thornton, Colo. As a teacher leader and member of the Center for Teaching Quality's Collaboratory, she is passionate about exploring and creating teacher-leadership models to improve Colorado's schools and encourage her peers to be active leaders of their profession. She is also a member of Adams 12 Five Star School's District 12 Educator's Association, which has allowed her to participate in the NEA , Better Lesson Master Teacher Project for the 2013-14 school year. A regular blogger for CTQ and other educational news syndicates such as Chalkbeat Colorado and Edweek Teacher, you can read about her classroom musings at Teaching in the Present Tense. ​
