Literacy Series 2021-22

Creating Successful Writers:
Putting Our Students at the Center of Their Learning
The CCIU’s Literary Series is offering workshops for K-1 and 2-6 grade teachers to help close the literary gap that has emerged. Workshops have been designed to provide teachers with the instructional strategies, resources and practical solutions they need to help students overcome this unprecedented disruption to education.
Help your students strengthen their literacy skills!
