A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

As an experienced literacy teacher, I am well aware of the demands on teachers working with students in grades 3-6, specifically in the area of literacy instruction. In a country where 21% of adults read below a 5th grade level, and 19% of high school graduates can’t read we are under a great deal of pressure to ensure literacy success of all students. In this engaging idea-packed day, we will explore many highly effective avenues of literacy instruction to help enhance what you are already doing well. You will leave with a greatly expanded “toolbox” of instructional ideas, activities and plans that you can begin to use immediately. These tools will be in the form of dozens of practical, research-based, tested techniques and methods for varying reading levels, all appropriate for use with students in grades 3-6.

I invite you to join me to explore, discuss, create, try out, and plan new ways to reach all readers and help them gain essential comprehension skills. Practical how-to’s, authentic work samples and testimonials will be a large part of our time together, so you can clearly see how the pieces fit. You will solidify your current knowledge base and learn new, innovative techniques. Ideas most relevant to individual student needs will be the focus of our day.

I look forward to meeting you at the seminar.

Sincerely,
Lynn Sanders

P.S. As part of our instructional day, you will take home a comprehensive reading resource handbook packed with proven techniques that will continue to take you on the journey we start together.
