In our School Leaders Seminar, What Every School Leader Needs to Know About Effective Literacy Teaching and Teacher Leadership, you'll learn how to use observational tools to
examine the classroom environment and understand best teaching
practices. Develop a sound foundation of literacy theory, assessment,
and practices such as Guided Reading, literature study groups, readers'
workshop, writers' workshop, guided writing, interactive writing, genre
study, and word study. You'll observe
and analyze videotaped teaching, and learn how to use language that
supports teacher development. Earn up to 24 hours of literacy professional development.
All aspects of this training were powerful, applicable, thought provoking and relevant!
