“I recommend the above applicant as a GIFT Workshop participant and agree to support the teacher if he/she is required to take time away from school to participate in this workshop and to facilitate the teacher’s role in providing feedback to their colleagues and as a resource provider on the use of geoscience research across the curriculum following this experience.”

The letter needs to include the date, signature of your school principal or appropriate supervisor, and her or his job title.
