Are you ready to revolutionize your teaching and dramatically improve the engagement and comprehension of ALL of your students while meeting the demands of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)? Are you looking for new ways to actively engage learners while improving the vocabulary for all students?  Would you like to take vocabulary to the next level using active participation?  Find out why vocabulary has become an important predictor of academic success?  Meet the demands of students reaching mastery level with the automaticity necessary for effortless performance.  Learn dozen of exciting practical lessons that promote active participation of your students' responses in both small and large group instruction.   

Author, Anita Archer will address this year's theme, Dynamic Vocabulary Instruction at the ninth annual Literacy Workshop. Anita is best known for her highly practical and efficient resources for teachers to implement explicit instruction in all content areas.  Anita will present effective research-based strategies to engage and inspire all students including reluctant readers, ESL students and special needs students.  Her most recent publication, Explicit Instruction is a part of What Works for Special Needs Learners Series.  The workshop is packed full of practical strategies that you can begin using the next day.    

In response to the economic times the University will offer a special group rate;  for every four paid registrations, a fifth teacher from the same school may attend for FREE.  All five attendees must be registered at the same time to receive the discount.  Discounts and early registration ends September 18, 2013.  It is the mission of the University to continue to serve teachers in the region. We encourage you to register early since space is limited.
