"Fire on the Page: Every Picture Tells a Story" is a full-day writers' workshop for educators. Hosted by the Yellowstone Writing Project, this year's interactive workshop immerses participants in the rich surroundings of the Museum of the Rockies (MOR), focusing on the ways in which images inspire writing. Sessions include, among others:
- using contemporary photography to inspire writing across the major text types in K-12 classrooms
- exploring the new MOR exhibit "Childhood Classics: 100 Years of Children's Book Illustration"
- accessing archived images, including on-site MOR resources and digital sources from MOR and renowned Montana writer Ivan Doig
- experiencing storytelling through silent film viewing and creation in conjunction with the International Youth Silent Film Festival.
Teachers of all disciplines and grade levels are invited, and teams of teachers are encouraged. Principals and curriculum leaders who are interested in thinking more about how writing builds and utilizes community will also benefit from the workshop.
Registration is $120, with an early bird registration of $100 available through Jan. 18.
Registration include conference, coffee, lunch and OPI renewal units.
The workshop takes place from 8:30am to 4:30pm at Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman. Register through MSU Continuing, Professional and Lifelong Learning at https://eu.courses.montana.edu/CourseStatus.awp?&course=19SAFIRE
