Reading Reconsidered: Rigorous Literacy Instruction  Train the Trainer Workshop December 12-13, 2019


By providing concrete techniques teachers can use immediately, this workshop tackles one of today's most urgent challenges: the distinct demands of closing the achievement gap in literacy.  Join facilitators Doug Lemov, Erica Woolway, Colleen Driggs and Jen Rugani to learn our most up-to-date guidance on reading as described in Reading Reconsidered: A Practical Guide to Rigorous Literacy Instruction.  This practice-intensive workshop provides instructional leaders with the tools to deliver high quality literacy training and to help drive results.
