The Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) and the University of Wyoming (UW) will co-sponsor Embracing Literacy, a summer professional development opportunity focused on literacy practices. District- and building-level teams are encouraged to register and attend this outstanding opportunity to hear from many nationally-renowned literacy experts.
Embracing Literacy will be held virtually over a four-week span beginning Tuesday, July 21. Virtual sessions will be scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays during each week. Sessions will be recorded providing registrants unlimited access for ongoing review of session content.
Registration is $50, with an option to buy two tickets and get one free. The conference theme, Optimizing Learning for All: Supporting Evidence-Based Literacy Practices, provides the foundation for participants to learn more about the components that combine to create literacy. The implementation of screening, progress monitoring and various classroom practices will also be explored.
PTSB and UW credit is being pursued.
