Early Learning Pix 

In this session, lower school leaders will gain (1) an understanding of early literacy development, (2) tools to communicate best practices to stakeholders (including families), and (3) structures to facilitate a professional learning community around central concepts in literacy development. These topics will be considered in the context of virtual learning and will include knowledge of development for reading, writing, and language broadly, tools to teach readers to support their meaning-making processes at unknowns, and an overview of frameworks and approaches to teaching reading development. Leaders will leave with slides and talking points for facilitating conversations about literacy growth as well as a list of resources that can support their own and their team’s development in early literacy instruction generally and during distance learning.

This session is for AISGW lower school division heads and faculty instructional leaders. The workshop will be led by Dr. Jennifer Zwillenberg, an expert in reading, writing and literacy for young learners.

Cost: $45 per person, to be billed separately after the event.
