Making A Difference in K-12 Education
Live, interactive webinar series
Mondays 8:00-8:30 am Central Time
June 17, July 1, July 29, August 19, 2013
This summer, we’ll be hosting a series of live, online professional development sessions. In these online sessions, you’re invited to join our team of language and literacy experts for a morning “coffee” chat to engage in dialogue on a particular problem one of your students’ is experiencing and to exchange ideas about how best to work with the student and problem presented for case study (if you prefer, you may quietly “sip” and listen).
Dr. Kenn Apel Dr. Jan Wasowicz Dr. Julie Masterson
Who should attend: Instructors of all grade levels and all student populations will benefit from this workshop.
Key benefits of attending:
This is a great opportunity for K-12 educators to talk with each other about best practices for language and literacy, focused around a specific word study teaching concern. These sessions are highly collaborative and reflective in nature and will help to create a professional learning community of educators who can look to each other for input and inspiration and in the process hone their problem-solving skills to enhance the teaching-learning process with their students.
Register and submit a question in advance about a particular student with a specific word study problem – from phonological awareness to orthography, vocabulary, and morphology, to storing and retrieving mental images of words in long term memory; encoding or decoding; skill development or application. Our panel will then select one question (per session) that we feel is of general interest to all of our participants.
Tap into the experience and knowledge of our panel of language and literacy experts with your questions about the selected case study. We’ll then open the floor for you, giving you a chance to share your insights, ideas and possible alternate approaches. Participants whose questions were not selected for case study will still have a chance ask their own questions related to the topic of the session.
