GFEC and Secondary ELA Leadership Team Meetings

December 2, 2019 - Reading, Writing, Rhetoric, and Reasoning Conference featuring Jennifer Fletcher

No matter where students’ lives lead after graduation, one of the most essential tools we can teach them is how to comprehend, analyze, be adaptive thinkers and communicators who can transfer their learning to new tasks and settings. Participants will leave with engaging classroom activities to help students at all levels read, write, listen, speak, and think rhetorically. Learn how to help students move beyond superficial responses to texts so they can be college-ready, career-ready, and ready for the challenges of the world.
