Workshops & Seminars
Building teacher knowledge and instructional capacity
We host full-day workshops and seminars for teachers focused on research-based instructional practices linked to improved student early literacy. Teachers have the opportunity to learn best practices, observe video demonstrations, and engage with each other, focused on building understanding. Up to 20 teachers per session.
Our workshops and institutes build teachers’ knowledge of literacy content and pedagogy. Areas of focus include:
- Creating & Managing the Literacy Environment
- Basic Building Block Skills for Early Literacy
- Using Data to Drive Early Literacy Instruction
- ELL & Early Literacy Instruction
- Guided Reading and Writing
- Intentional Read-Alouds
Early Literacy Instruction
Seminar Participants learn how to create a classroom community that promotes kindness, responsibility and respect. They explore successful classroom management strategies and learn how to plan mini lessons that establish the routines and rituals needed to make literacy learning successful. Time is also spent learning how the physical arrangement of a classroom can support independence and scaffold student learning.
