reTHINK is back for its 15th year, returning to Rock Canyon HS in Highlands Ranch, and again is paired with the CSMA Summer Adviser Workshop.

The workshop is condensed to three intense days this year, Wednesday through Friday, and is a commuter camp. Lunch and snacks are included each day with your registration.

The registration form is here and the dates are June 3-5, 2020. It’s not too early to reserve those days and begin dreaming of how your 2020-21 student media can become even more effective, more inspiring and more fun!

Bring your top editors… bring your interested rookies…
Bring the entire staff for three days of concentrated work this summer…
June 3-5, at Rock Canyon HS in Highlands Ranch

Our experienced instructors will meet you and your students wherever you are, whether the students are ready to take their publications to the next level or whether they are starting from scratch, whether they have had three years on staff or no time on staff.

Instructors Kristi Rathbun, Jessica Hunziker, Jonathan Rogers, and Jack Kennedy bring many years of experience as advisers to this, our 15th year of this workshop. Their students have earned the very top national and state honors in print news publications and in yearbooks, and they would love to help your students enjoy that sort of success, all while serving your community of readers and having some fun in the process. They also have experience with a variety of online and video media.

Rock Canyon is conveniently located a few miles west of I-25 and a couple miles south of E470, and offers three air-conditioned computer labs, all with Macintosh computers and all with InDesign and Photoshop installed. If you use Windows, no problem. You are welcome to bring your own laptops and fonts, but you may also simply work with InDesign on Macs. Files transfer smoothly between the platforms.

We begin each day at 9 a.m., and end about 4 p.m. Snacks and lunches are provided to maximize available learning time. Everything is included in our per person cost of $150. You even get to take home copies of PowerPoints and handouts shared during the workshop.

Students may attend without their advisers, but we highly recommend advisers attend so they will be part of the discussion, part of the instruction, and part of the decision making that tends to come out of these three intense days.

To register, please go to our online form.

You may pay using a credit card online, or mail/hand deliver a check in payment. Registration deadline is May 27.

If you have questions or want to simply mail a check: please contact Jack Kennedy, the workshop coordinator, at 9253 Sori Lane, Highlands Ranch CO 80126

reTHINK is sponsored by the Colorado Student Media Association, and runs concurrently with the CSMA Summer Adviser Workshop, which focuses on management, leadership and instruction issues that support advisers. Some advisers participate in both SAW and reTHINK.

We believe that reTHINK is the best $150 per person investment you can make in creating success in 2019-20. We hope you and your students can be part of a great workshop.
