HOBART: Keeping Students Engaged in Reading (K-6)

Authentic engagement is the key to creating students who will be lifelong readers. The work students do in the classroom must be relevant and the design of our reading workshops must be purposeful. Together, we will learn and practice strategies that influence students to better understand tools that help them comprehend and maintain strategic behaviors as readers. Presented by Leslie Miller for grades K-6.


 This workshop will be held at Hobart High School in Hobart, IN.  You will enter through Door 1 and will meet in Room LC111.
