Literacy professional development for teachers, literacy coaches, reading and literacy specialists, and school leaders on best practices for teaching reading and writing
Monday, July 14, 2014 through Thursday, July 17, 2014
8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
During this four-day institute, you will study the structures and rationales for Readers' Workshop and examine how the use of whole-group minilessons, small-group instruction, independent reading, and the language of conferring support the growth of all readers while meeting the demands of the Common Core State Standards.
Learn how to establish routines for managing the classroom, engage students in writing about reading that maximizes the impact of Reader's Notebooks, and select texts for a variety of purposes.
This institute will conclude with a meaningful whole-group share.
Registration for this institute will open in April 2014
