Santa Fe Writing Workshops, with the Institute for Computing in Research and the Computer Science Alliance, will host a professional development workshop, aimed at CTE teachers in Santa Fe. The course will be taught by:

Sandra Blakeslee
Science journalist for the New York Times, co-founder of the Santa Fe Writing Workshops, author of Phantoms of the Brain, On Intelligence, Sleights of Mind, …
Jeremy N. Smith
Author of Growing a Garden City, Epic Measures, and Breaking and Entering: The Extraordinary Story of a Hacker Called Alien.
Ed Fenimore
Astrophysicist at Los Alamos National Laboratory, two time winner of the Rossi prize in high energy astrophysics.

Our goal is to raise the awareness of writing as an important part of
the technical and scientific training at all ages.

In this workshop we discuss how to train students aimed at technical
fields in good writing practices. This will involve discussions of the
writing process for reports, papers, books, as well as applications
for university, jobs, and grants. We will demonstrate the
relationship between these processes and the common core state

There are no prerequisites except for being a teacher with an interest
in clear communication.

This workshop is free for teachers, but space is limited so please
sign up by email soon! Dates are flexible, and individual make-up is
possible if you have to miss some of the time slots. We plan to run from 2pm to about 5pm.
