Many elementary students struggle to understand what they are supposed to do as they learn to read strategically.

Using Tanny McGregor’s Comprehension Connections: Bridges to Strategic Reading, teachers will learn how to make abstract reading strategies, such as schema, inferring, and visualizing, concrete for their K-5 students through visual, tangible, everyday lessons.

When: Saturday Morning (9:00am – 12:30pm)

Where: Room 203

Who: Teachers, Grades K-5


Decades of research has indicated that cooperative learning is a powerful tool in setting up a classroom. However, structures and activities must be crafted with key cooperative learning components in mind to truly engage students in rigorous, meaningful work. This training will introduce participants to those key components and engage participants in multiple structures they can use day one.

  • Teachers will be able to articulate the purpose and benefits of using cooperative learning structures.
  • Teachers will be able to apply new knowledge by planning at least one cooperative learning structure for the first week of school

When: Saturday Afternoon (1:30pm – 5:00pm)

Where: Room 203

Who: Teachers, Grades 3-12
