Session Location:
Drayton Valley Omniplex 5737 45 Avenue, Drayton Valley, AB
About the Session:

We are excited to have B.C. teacher, author and literacy consultant Adrienne Gear back our district for a dynamic ‘Powerful’ workshop.  In this session, Adrienne will share her ideas on how to develop a balanced reading program to incorporate both “in the book” and “in your head” reading skills as well as how to integrate the Reading Power strategies into your content areas.   She will review the key concepts of Reading Power and the levels of understanding – from literal to interactive.   She will share lessons, student samples and recommended anchor books to support the lessons.  As always, Adrienne’s workshops are very practical, so you will leave with lessons you can use in your classroom tomorrow!
