Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

NCCAT will hold a five-session series to enable teachers to earn an NCCAT Literacy Badge. Attend all five and earn a badge or attend individual sessions of your choice based on interest and need. All sessions will be held in Cullowhee.

In order to promote student understanding of concepts of print, alphabetic knowledge, application of the alphabetic principle, and basic conventions of our writing system the foundational skills for reading must be understood and taught in depth by our teachers. The five sessions will comprise a study of the building blocks of literacy for success in beginning reading. Effective instruction in these fundamental components holds the key to life-long learning for every child in your classroom.
