There are multiple paths to literacy learning. That being said, we do know that there are some proven high-yield strategies that do make a huge difference no matter the path taken. The teachers (majority Canadian) celebrated in Miriam’s newest research-based book Multiple Paths to Literacy (2016) demonstrate many of these high-yield strategies and instructional approaches by providing hundreds of practical ideas that teachers can put to use in their
classrooms tomorrow. In this practical workshop, real-life examples will come to life through the many photos, student writing samples, and student, teacher, and parent reflections and stories. Miriam will demonstrate how to scaffold play, self-regulation, art, inquiry, technology and literacy learning effectively while linking assessment to instruction. “Excellent teachers know it’s both what you teach and how you teach” (Copple and Bredekamp 2009, 48)… Let’s close the gaps and accomplish a lasting legacy.
Participants will receive Miriam’s newest book, Multiple Pathways to Literacy!
