As schools face rigorous testing and educational standards for all students, this conference provides real, practical, evidence based strategies that can be immediately applied to the classroom, with a special emphasis on struggling students. Conference attendees will learn from teachers and researchers who have helped students make the transformation from struggling to successful.
The conference features nearly 25 workshops over three sessions, focused on students from elementary school through high school with a variety of learning differences. Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with educators from regional districts and New York City.
A keynote address by renowned academic literacy specialist Dr. Kevin Feldman is a highlight of the event. Dr. Feldman will speak on “Meaningful Engagement: Every Student, Every Lesson, Every Day.” In addition, he will present two workshops on academic vocabulary during the conference.
The event is open to the public. Cost is $75; includes morning refreshments and lunch. Registration: Jennifer DelVecchio, Putnam Northern Westchester BOCES, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
