I’m pleased to report that I’ll be presenting twice in October at events that are open to the public:
Oct. 11: “Using Grammar to Improve Writing” at NJ Charter Public Schools Association Annual Conference in Newark, NJ (Click HERE to register.)
|This workshop explains how to connect writing and grammar instruction systematically and provides practical tools to support teachers in doing this. Topics include:
· Why students struggle with grammar
· What to STOP doing
· Seven Principles for Effective Grammar/Writing Instruction
· How to help students who are not on grade level
· Other factors that affect how well we write
· How to meet the Common Core Standards for Language and Writing SYSTEMATICALLY
Oct. 27: “Education in America: The Past, Present, and Future” at the Educational Forum for Intellectually Curious Students in Grades 4-12, organized by Scholar Search Associates at Oak Knoll School in Summit, NJ (Click HERE for FREE registration).
|Follow the evolution of the American educational system over the last century and obtain an understanding of why American education is what it is today. Learn particularly how the 1983 federal report, A Nation at Risk, which described a declining American educational system, sent ripple effects through government programs and policies that we are still feeling today. We’ll also take a close look at how advances in technology and the growth of the charter school movement continue to transform the field of education. Join in and gain a richer awareness of today’s education and what you can expect in the years to come.|
Please spread the word, and I hope to see you soon!
