Literacy Action Network 2016-17 (October to April 2017)

We’re excited to announce that the regional Literacy Action Network will be back during the 2016-17 school year. Our first year was a huge success. We can’t wait for year two and hope even more schools will join us.

Who should attend? Anyone who is committed to quality literacy instruction and wants to connect with other literacy leaders (teachers, coaches, building administrators, etc.) to collaborate and learn together.
What is the format? During 2016-17, we have decided to focus our conversations around a book study of Who’s Doing the Work: How to Say Less So Readers Can Do More (Stenhouse, 2016) by Jan Burkins and Kim Yaris.
When will we meet? We will meet once per month for seven meetings. Each month we’ll discuss a chapter from the book, reflect on success and challenges, and select literacy action steps. The first session will be in October and the last in early April. The meetings are in the afternoon from 1:00 - 3:00.
Where are the meetings? The meets are at LCSC in Fergus Falls: 1001 East Mount Faith Avenue
What is the cost of attendance? The cost is $100 per member for the year. Memberships can be shared (i.e. you could send a replacement if you are unable to attend).
What should we do if we wish to be part of this great experience? To participate, you can register with LCSC and then purchase a copy of the book, Who’s Doing the Work: How to Say Less So Readers Can Do More (Stenhouse, 2016) by Jan Burkins and Kim Yaris.
