Mark your Calendars for the July 31, 2014 full-day FREE McKeel IBIS Conference at the Sheraton Sand Key in Clearwater for teachers and administrators from across the state. Over 100 attendees participated last year in the free hands-on interactive sessions about technology integration, writing and literacy.“I went to the conference at Sand Key. I am INSPIRED! Effectively teaching sentence structures has been missing from my day! This is going to push our students to that next level. Thank you! I have the books you suggested ‘Mechanically Inclined’ and ‘Everyday Editing.’ I can't wait to teach grammar, who knew? Thanks again!
