13855 • Hands-on Activities to Engage Students in Early Grades Literacy and Beyond – Cullowhee
In his book Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell tells us that to become expert at anything requires about 10,000 hours of practice. Unfortunately, our struggling readers will never make that investment of time if they hate what they are asked to do. Participants in this day-long program will learn how to transform worksheets, fluency practice, and other solo efforts into engaging activities that still reinforce essential literacy skills. The agenda for each “Hands-on Literacy Activities” daylong program (9am to 3pm) is the same. Sign up for only one. Teachers at the K–5 grade levels are encouraged to attend.
