This year’s Mastering the Art of the Quote workshop is designed to increase teacher and student participation in Embracing Our Differences’ creative writing curriculum and quotation competition. Presented in partnership with the Curriculum and Instruction Department of the Sarasota County School District, the workshop takes the difficult and abstract topic of diversity and tolerance and helps students express and create a short powerful quote on the subject. These quotes will focus on diversity and bullying prevention and can be used for submission to the 2018 Embracing Our Differences quotation competition.  All lesson plans are linked to the Language Arts Florida Standards.
