Look for this workshop
next season!

Dr. Blotch has assembled an all-star team of spies and writers to train for the ultimate espionage challenge, OPERATION BRASS (Brainstorming effectively, Reading for key words, Appropriately using tools, Source citation, and Synthesizing information). Writers will enter our doors as gumshoes and exit as seasoned spies, ready to use their new tools to identify important information from texts and use it to solve mysteries (and respond to questions like the ones they’ll soon encounter on the M-STEP test this spring). Agents will create new code names and search for clues in our files to aid in the completion of this epic mission. We’ll practice the kinds of writing and fact-finding that is important for students taking the M-Step, but also for all writers who want to be wise about seeking information and citing sources. This workshop description will self-destruct in 30 seconds — so sign-up now!

*Please note that while this workshop will give writers practice with techniques and skills that we hope will prove helpful on the M-STEP, this workshop is not affiliated with or designed by the Michigan Department of Education.
