Dyslexia & Literacy Support
in the Brampton/Mississauga Area
Professional and continuing development is very important for educators and adults to grow and develop their expertise. Workshops represent one method of continuing education for schools, home-school groups, or your organization.
Learning experiences that fit your needs can be designed so they meet your school's/ group's goals.
Workshop topics include, but are not limited to the following:
Content Integration: This workshop is for schools or home-school groups who are interested in integrating all topics of study into cohesive learning units. Focus will be on the theory behind Integration as well as on a practical planning strategy that can be used to develop your own units of study.
Professional Learning Community: Learn how to establish, manage, and encourage a dynamic professional learning community (PLC) in your school.
Literacy: Presentations on literacy topics (reading, writing) can be developed to meet the needs of your group. Past workshop topics were: Guided Reading, Literacy in the Content Areas, Reading Assessment, Teaching Non-Fiction, Balanced Literacy, Writing in the Science Classroom.
Science: Topics relate to: making science relevant to students, teaching hands-on science, science as a way of thinking, etc.
Teaching Theory: Relevant teaching concepts important to best practices can be explored, explained, and related to everyday teaching. Examples are: Differentiation, Learning Styles, Backwards Planning (Understanding by Design), etc.
Workshops have been successfully held at private schools in the GTA as well as the Ontario Science Teachers Association Conference 2011.
