Literacy Learning Network

Literacy Learning Network

This is the eleventh year bringing together bright and motivated educators committed to increasing their knowledge and teaching of literacy. The Literacy Learning Network focuses on supporting educators in implementing practical and effective practices that will positively impact the learning and achievement of our region’s students.

During the four sessions, participants will apply theory to action and take back to their school strategies that create opportunities for all students to make meaning and participate fully in their classrooms.

Over the course of the year, participants will learn specific strategies for:

  • Effectively teaching reading, writing, speaking and listening to a wide range of diverse learners
  • Embedding scaffolding in lessons to increase student access to learning
  • Linking learning to the lives of their students

In each session, participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Reflect on their students’ needs and how to apply new learning
  • Plan for instruction that supports equitable access to learning for all students
  • Collaborate with other professionals to grow their knowledge and practice

If your district has previously participated, we welcome you back. If you are joining us for the first time, we welcome you to a year of dynamic learning, reflection, and collaboration with other educators excited about growing their professional practice!
