Distinguished Speaker Series: Planning a Year Around Workshop Teaching: Grades 5-12

Recent research indicates that students are reading less as demands for literacy increase across all professions. Now is the time for the artful teaching of reading: to teach young readers the moves necessary to make sense of difficult texts; to motivate students to read independently; to create classrooms that inspire students to be lifelong readers. When it comes to teaching young writers, how do we move students beyond the “flat and stagnant” writing that has become the normal in many schools? Our democracy demands engaged writers who craft voices that are heard and valued. The conditions we create in classrooms build trust in young writers, thus increasing their willingness to take risks.

When: April 12, 2018, 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Where: Contra Costa County Office of Education Board Room, 77 Santa Barbara Rd., Pleasant Hill, CA 94523
