No matter where you are in your literacy journey, this event will further enhance your literacy leadership skills.  Day One features keynote speaker, Sue Jackson, National Literacy Consultant for Scholastic Canada and an enthusiastic and innovative speaker, author, consultant and educator. She will lead participants through a morning of interactive and practical comprehensive literacy implementation strategies.  



May 31st, 2016 (Leveraging Literacy)

“Leveraging Literacy”  is targeted at grade K-9 classroom teachers and learning coaches. Sue Jackson will lead a full day session based on the components of comprehensive literacy environment. Sue will also facilitate  discussion, collaboration, and planning around practical implementation of Scholastic’s Literacy Place resources. Although this session is aimed towards K-9 classroom teachers, it would also be beneficial for administrators and district office personnel to attend as it will allow them to deepen their understanding of the role Scholastic’s Literacy Place resources play within a  comprehensive literacy environment.
