A SEEDS Environmental Writing Challenge for Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. Students
We welcome your participation in "It's Write For Communities", a challenge that encourages writing about rural and community environmental issues. Click here for the 2012 - 2013 brochure.
There is no better way to proceed into the future than to inquire into your own (Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C.’s) magnificent backyard. Enhance student understanding and preservation of their community and rural areas and extend learning of existing curricular expectations.
Much of the writing that your students do regularly in science, language arts, and social studies fits right into the SEEDS "It's Write for Communities" Challenge.
