A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

Teaching struggling, at risk students can be the most rewarding, yet challenging endeavor an educator can undertake. As a teacher of many struggling students, I have seen children flounder due to misconceptions about the specific instruction the child actually needs to increase understanding and learning. The most important ingredient is a teacher who has the expertise to determine what the student already knows and how to build on that knowledge. In addition, an effective and efficient organization and set up of a Title I program can make reaching the goals for at risk students much more attainable. Join your colleagues for two days dedicated to building teacher expertise and planning for a successful Title I program in your school or district.

During the two days, I will share with you many proven and research based strategies that accelerate the reading and math achievement of at risk students. You’ll experience hands on strategies to increase teacher expertise and build on your current Title I model. Grouping, assessment, choosing high impact materials and technology, developing thinking skills, and motivating students are just some of the topics I will address.

I extend to you a personal invitation with a pledge from me that you’ll leave this two day institute with dozens of practical strategies for accelerating your Title I students’ achievement and for building and enhancing your entire Title I program. You’ll also leave with the extensive resource handbook I wrote specifically for this two day program to help you work with your students, teachers and teams to increase the achievement of your struggling learners.

Sincerely,
Kelly Harmon 


P.S. You will learn dozens of specific instructional strategies you can use to greatly increase the success of your grades K 6 students.
