Make plans to join NCCAT for two exciting Literacy Professional Development programs in April. NCCAT's instructional programs reflect the broad range of unique professional development topics for public school teachers and other educators. Challenging formats, combined with professional learning communities, shape the NCCAT offerings. All programs incorporate state standards.
All Kids Can Write, April 3-6, in Ocracoke - Discover new ways to turn reading strategies into writing opportunities that deepen comprehension and extend student learning. This in-depth, interactive program will focus on the power of the teacher as the mentor model in exploring multiple tools for unlocking thinking in the classroom—through the process of uncovering your own writing life. Strategies will include the use of journal responses, writing as inquiry across the content areas, and the power of authentic interactions with poetry and prompts. This program is designed for teachers in grades K-3.
K-5: Visions for Teaching Writing, April 24-27, in Cullowhee - If our pupils are to be successful in school, and in all aspects of their lives, they must be effective writers. Our students should have practice and instruction in writing because this skill does not develop naturally. An important ingredient in supporting a vision for teaching writing is to apply methods with a proven track record of success. This program will help teachers observe a child’s writing and explore how how to take their work to the next level. Join NCCAT to learn about research-based best practices for teaching writing in the K-5 classroom.
