Raising Achievement in Reading and Writing During the COVID Era
Even under “normal” circumstances, teaching reading is hard.
Educators at every level wrestle with teaching reading and writing because there is so much to teach and so little time to teach it well. And with COVID-era challenges, it’s harder than ever!
At National Literacy Institute, we know you want to build better readers and writers. In order to do that, you need a plan for teaching that’s rooted in practical, best-practice strategies. That’s why we are hosting the Super Saturday Literacy Academy!
This fun and engaging day of learning will feature more than 25 virtual, interactive sessions that will bolster your literacy instruction whether you’re teaching students in person or remotely.
