Are you tired of overpriced literacy conferences that make you feel like a loner in a huge crowd, rushed from one overpacked session to the next, without space to think and network with old and new friends?
We’ve created professional development events we would like to attend, but never seem able to find anymore—small enough to chat with the presenters and other participants, with resources provided that leave our minds buzzing with new possibilities for working with students and colleagues back home.
Join us this summer for the Lead Learners Summer Institute on June 22-23 in Warsaw, Indiana, featuring Choice Literacy contributors as well as Hoosier teachers and coaches from our consortium. You can read a full description of the presentations and schedule at this link. You’ll get a chance to meet face-to-face with the writers who have shared their classrooms for years on the Choice Literacy website. If you aren’t already a member, your institute registration includes a three-month subscription to the Choice Literacy site, so you can continue reading, writing, and viewing videos from the presenters’ classrooms long after the institute ends.
Our presenters all work full-time as teachers, literacy coaches, and school leaders. They know the reality of all the challenges of teaching and leading, and yet find plenty of joy in the work anyway. They will be sharing their latest thinking on nurturing young readers and writers, as well as the best ways to coach and mentor teachers.
Celebrate the end of another great year of learning together, and get inspired with new classroom design ideas, coaching strategies, and fresh ideas for teaching reading and writing.
