NWPNH is sponsoring a “curriculum camp” on November 1st from 1:00-4:00 at the PSU Graduate Center in Concord at 2 Pillsbury Street.  This will be an orientation and working session for teachers interested in preparing integrated curriculum units for use in their classes.  We will work to define the issue or topic of the unit, brainstorm aspects of the topic,  formulate critical questions and gather materials.  Teams of teachers are encouraged to attend.  The session is being offered free of charge and professional development certificates will be provided.
