Congratulations to Michelle Morrison on Her New Classroom Grant Award
posted by: Cindy Omlin | February 23, 2017, 12:27 pm   

Ms. Michelle Morrison, NWPE member and kindergarten teacher at Idaho Arts Charter School in Nampa, ID, has been awarded a $250 New Classroom Start Up Grant from Northwest Professional Educators.  Ms. Morrison will use the funds to purchase materials to advance learning with the Scottish Storyline Method which builds on the principle that learning, to be meaningful, has to be memorable, and that by using learners’ enthusiasm for story-making, the classroom, the teacher's role, and learning can be transformed.  Through the use of key questions, Storyline takes a topic and allows students to travel through a story as characters reacting to the incidents that are developed as the story unfolds.
