In the Primary Literacy Institute, teachers will develop a clear understanding of how to integrate powerful literacy instruction with compelling content and play-based practices to better meet the needs of the primary learners in content-based literacy. Educators will leave with strategies for selecting “worthy” anchor texts and learn how to support young learners to comprehend these complex texts through close read-alouds. Participants will learn to scaffold purposeful and authentic writing tasks to help students build both skills and understanding. In addition, educators will learn to infuse music, movement, and play into their literacy instruction.

Registration opens August 7, 2017.
