NELMS and Keys to Literacy Fall Literacy Event:
Essential Literacy Instruction for Middle
December 8, 2014 and January 7, 2015
Wyndham Andover Boston
A small investment in your time can result in developing student literacy skills that will last a lifetime.
Join us on December 8, 2014 and January 7, 2015 for our workshop series – Essential Literacy Instruction for Middle School Teachers and learn how to immediately apply instructional strategies needed to develop effective student thinking, reading, and writing skills. These strategies are based on the most current research and give educators the tools they need to implement the Common Core.
The workshop series consists of four instructional routines – Comprehension, Close Reading, Content Writing, and Argument Writing. Discounts are available for attending multiple sessions or having multiple teachers attend from the same district.
Each day consists of two day-long instructional workshop options. Attend one or both days.
