July 15th –19th
Do you ever wonder what some of the ingredients are that go into the successful teaching of reading and writing? Both reading and writing comprehension are both complex processes that require lots of effort and various skills. Some of these skills are often completely neglected while a child follows traditional teaching methods. As a result, reading and writing often become a cause for a student’s anxiety and frustration. In this course educators will be given new, innovative and fun techniques for reading and writing teaching methods. From journaling, to writing projects, to guided reading, or reading with purpose, educators will find the tools to create the perfect recipe for their students to be successful. By the end of this course teachers will be armed with enough “food for thought” to help them be the best teachers of reading and writing they can be.
This course is a must for educators of all grades and levels K-12.
