"Literacy is the Foundation for Learning"

Literacy and learning go hand and hand. That is why all students must master the skills and strategies needed to comprehend content reading, build strong vocabularies, and write and communicate effectively. Partnering with Keys to Literacy, NELMS will provide these two two-day professional development workshops to help teachers focus on content literacy to help their students develop a lifelong capacity to learn.
