Friday, July 5, 2013- 9:00am- 3:00pm
Topic: “Motivating Adolescent Readers and Writers in an Era of STAAR Testing”
Keynote Speaker: Kelly Gallagher, author, classroom teacher, and literacy consultant
Session Focus: Gallagher will provide a hands-on workshop to teach reading and writing in the new era of STAAR testing; he will provide teachers and administrators specific steps to reverse the downward spiral that will help prevent the loss of another generation of readers and writers. His workshop will focus on motivating adolescent readers and writers by providing strategies on modeling deeper reading with your students and on moving students beyond the scripted school writing. His key philosophy focuses on creating literate classroom communities of readers and writers rather than test based teaching.
