Professional Development Course Offerings through the Spartanburg Writing Project - Spring 2009.

Two "hybrid" courses which will require part face-to-face participation and part online participation. These courses carry 3 hours recertification or graduate credit through USC Upstate.

Both courses will focus on Enhancing the Curriculum through Meaningful Integration of Technology.  One course is designed to meet the needs of elementary educators and the other for secondary teachers in ALL content areas.  The courses are open to certified educators in Spartanburg and Union Counties with each district receiving 3 slots.  If all slots do not fill by the deadline, we will open remaining slots to other districts.

The only cost involved for teachers wishing to enroll is a $10 fee to USC Upstate.  SWP will provide all texts and materials.
