Retired Park Ranger Whittlesey to Give Keynote
Pre-register by Oct. 14 for the discounted rate of $30. https://www.mfpe.org/edconference/ Onsite registration will cost $55.
Supporters of Writing Projects will gather Thursday evening in the home of Belgrade teacher Mark Lehman for a "BelGREAT Social with a Side of Writing." Yes, we'll write. Yes, we'll socialize. Yes, we'll eat. Yes, we'll earn credit!
For our keynote speaker this year, we are thrilled to host retired Yellowstone National Park ranger and park historian Lee Whittlesey. He has published many books (best known for Death in Yellowstone) and will present in the auditorium (Friday, Oct. 18 at 10 am) about how he uses hooks, stories, and drama to grab readers and make history books come alive. He is a dynamic speaker and will surely grab your attention as well!
This fall conference is such a wonderful way to network, to communicate research-based practices, and to collect good teaching strategies. We could not offer any of those opportunities without presenters, so many thanks in advance to our presenters for their willingness to share their time and talent.
For those of you travelling, we have 20 rooms blocked (for Wed/Thur nights) at the Holiday Inn Express in Belgrade. This hotel is conveniently located (only 1.1 miles to our home for the Thursday social and 1.1 miles to Belgrade High School!) for a discounted rate of $85/night for double occupancy. Call (406) 388-7100 to make a reservation. It's a very nice, new(ish) hotel that includes hot breakfast. Use the group name WPUBS and/or group contact Mark Lehman to book your room.
