Brief Program Description

Research tells us that students develop complex language skills, when they talk, read, write, and share ideas about what they are learning. Engaging in open conversation, reading and writing collaboratively, allows students to learn from each other and practice using the academic language. By articulating their thoughts, students make connections to content and to others. In this session, participant will actively engage with strategies that effectively use imagery, gesturing, conversation, and word play as springboards to jumpstart conversations, enhance vocabulary, and develop reading and writing skills. Learn how to reduce stress, improve attitudes, and make reading a lifelong passion!
