That's why I'm excited about my upcoming workshop, "Getting Started with Laura Candler's Power Reading Workshop," which I'll be teaching with Pat Calfee on July 27th in Raleigh, NC. This workshop is designed for teachers who have never used a reading workshop approach, and we'll explore the step-by-step strategies to make the process easy and fun. Pat and I taught this workshop together in January, and everyone had a great time! More importantly, they learned information that will have a significant impact on their reading instruction. In the words of one attendee who is a Literacy Coach,
"As a reading specialist, I am so eager to go back to my school and share the guided reading/ independent conferring concept with the teachers in my building. The most valuable aspect of the workshop was understanding that you do not have to do "centers" to construct a good reader's workshop." ~ Monique DouglasRegistration Information

Other Workshop Opportunities
If you aren't able to attend this public session, one of us would love to a present teacher workshop on site at your school or in your district.

I hope to see you at a teacher workshop soon!
