The Academic Literacy Project Grades K-3 for Year 2 Participants is a two-part series.

The first training will be facilitated by Dr. Anita Archer.  The focus will be on writing strategies.  Dr. Archer will present strategies that encourage teachers to implement shorter and more frequent writing opportunities for students in all content areas.  The presentation will also focus on providing opportunities to respond to text through writing as well as discussion.  Dr. Archer will incorporate text dependent analysis strategies to help students prepare for the revised ELA assessment. 

Dr. Archer will model strategies and share examples of how teachers and schools across the country are increasing student achievement through writing. Participants will have the opportunity to experience and practice the strategies throughout the training.

Adolescent Literacy Project goals are to become familiar with and implement research-based literacy strategies that will increase student achievement for adolescent learners.  The 2-day training will be based on the following research-based recommendations:
   -    Provide explicit vocabulary instruction
   -    Provide direct and explicit  comprehension strategy instruction
   -    Provide opportunities for extended discussion of text meaning and interpretation
   -    Increase student motivation and engagement in literacy learning
