RAISe YOUR VOICE: Writing Workshop with Maine Education Project
Producing for Raise Your Voice can be a great way to make friends, and share your ideas with our audience.
Raise Your Voice!, the Maine Education Project’s center for ideas and perspectives from students and teachers reaches a broad audience interested in education and we want your voice in the conversation.
We want to know what young people think about what they’re learning, how they’re learning, and what they’re doing with the skills they're gaining. And we want to know what it means to teach young people today, what challenges educators face, and how we as a society can ease the process and help improve the system.
For the second summer in a row we're inviting high school students to join our Raise Your Voice Workshops, two-weeks of writing, making new friends, and creating multimedia. You'll gain valuable communication skills while developing work we'll feature on Raise Your Voice. These programs will take place at the University of Maine in Orono and at Baxter Academy for Technology and Science in Portland. They're free, and they'll run from July 23 to August 3, 8:30 a.m. to noon each day.
For more information about any of our programs, contact Dave Boardman, our education program coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call him at 207.423.6934. And if you're a teacher and interested in working Raise Your Voice into your curriculum, reach out. We'd love to talk about ways to connect your students with our audiences.
Part of The Maine Education Project and funded by The Nellie Mae Education Foundation, Raise Your Voice!provides a forum for students and educators to share what it means to teach and learn in today's world.
