This is a day when literacy educators from across the globe come together to learn. It is a fast-paced day, brimming with workshops that can help you find horizons to work towards, whether your focus is on higher level comprehension, content area literacy, units of study in writing, assessment-based instruction, increasing student engagement, or bringing books to life. In one short day you can stand on the shoulders of the profession. Workshops will be led by Lucy Calkins, all senior leaders and staff developers at the Project, Kathy Collins, Carl Anderson, and many others.
The day begins at 9:00 a.m. at Riverside Church, one block west of Teachers College, and continues throughout the entire College.
Dav Pilkey is the award-winning author of books for children including the Captain Underpants series, Dog Breath, winner of the California Young Reader Medal; The Paperboy, a Caldecott Honor Book; The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby, which debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list; and the Dumb Bunnies series. He is also the author of the New York Times bestselling The Adventures of Ook & Gluk: Kung-Fu Cavemen from the Future.
