This week, a collaborative learning opportunity involving three EducationPlus PLN’s, SLACCA, EduCoaches and LARC, is taking place at the Ferguson Florissant School District. We’re beginning a four year literacy initiative and the Reading Workshop for Beginners Three Day Institute is kicking it off! The institute is a way for the region’s educators to share best practices. Participants will be gaining an understanding of the instructional philosophy and framework of the Reading Workshop.
They will be walking away with a structure for implementing and starting the workshop approach in their classrooms. Teams of three to five teachers are here with an instructional coach and/or administrator from their district. The districts participating this week include:
• Ferguson Florissant
• Francis Howell
• University City
These educators are engaging in lesson planning and implementation as well as daily breakout sessions. Facilitators sharing their best practices are from Fox, Bayless, Parkway, Ritenour, Warren County and Wentzville school districts. The June session filled so quickly that we are now offering a July session.
Reading Workshop for Beginners Three Day Institute takes place again July 21-23 at Cross Keys Middle School. Register for this session by July 14; keep in mind you must attend all three sessions. Questions? Contact EducationPlus’ Director of Teaching and Learning, Stephanie Madlinger.
