It's the end of November, which means that it's time once again to attend the Whitewater Creative Writing Festival. Étude has been attending the Festival for over a decade, but this was the first trip for most of our attending students this year. Fourteen 9th, 10th, and 11th graders hopped on the bus and spent the day on the UW-Whitewater campus, interacting with peers from across the Midwest, workshopping their writing, and learning from some of the finest writers in Wisconsin.
Subbing in a science class can be intimidating for a non-science teacher, but when the students have clear directions and are excited about their work, it’s easy! Today the Chemistry students worked in small groups to write short fictionalized stories about scientists who contributed to the atomic theory.
