This Fall, (2018), for just $50, Mount Marty College will be granting 1 post-graduate credit to teachers attending the SCASD/SDACTE Annual Conference in Huron, SD.  In order to receive credit, teachers must attend the entire conference, register and pay online with Mount Marty by end of day on Saturday, and write a reflective paper to be submitted within 3 weeks.  Syllabi will be available on site from Danielle Harms.

Participants in the joint Speech Communication Association of South Dakota (SCASD)/South Dakota Council of Teachers of English (SDCTE) 2018 conference held on September 6-8, 2018, will expand their understanding of current best practices in speech, debate, theater, and English either in the classroom or in the extra-curricular areas.  Further, they will develop an understanding of the issues facing speech and debate teachers/coaches, theater directors, and English teachers.  They will demonstrate their ability to apply these practices in their classroom or extra-curricular area through completion of the required assignment.
