This is a day when literacy educators from across the globe come together to learn. It is a fast-paced day, brimming with workshops that can help you find horizons to work towards, whether your focus is on higher level comprehension, content area literacy, units of study in writing, assessment-based instruction, increasing student engagement, or bringing books to life. In one short day you can stand on the shoulders of the profession. Workshops will be led by Lucy Calkins, all senior leaders and staff developers at the Project, Kathy Collins, Carl Anderson, and many others.
The day begins at 9:00 a.m. at Riverside Church, one block west of Teachers College, and continues throughout the entire College.
Andrew Solomon, Ph.D., is a writer and lecturer on politics, culture and psychology, a Professor of Clinical Psychology at Columbia University Medical Center, and President of PEN American Center. Solomon’s most recent book, the best-selling Far From the Tree: Parents, Children, and the Search for Identity tells the stories of families raising exceptional children who not only learn to deal with their challenges, but also find profound meaning in doing so. Far from the Tree has received the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction and was chosen as one of the New York Times Ten Best Books of 2012.
The day is free of charge, without registration. It is a gift offered to the TCRWP community.
