Come one come all!

You will receive 0.5 literacy CEUs for each session you attend...


YES! Our math is correct... you will earn 0.5 literacy CEUs for just 2 hours of face-to-face instruction. The other three hours of instruction can be done on your own schedule... while running or hiking in the park, chillin' at home in your jammies, relaxing at the coffee shop, or lounging by the pool.


All sessions will be at CCS Central Services from 9-11 am in Room 111:

  • July 11, 2013- Vocabulary: Beyond the Flash Card!
  • July 18, 2013- Cooperative Literacy
  • July 25, 2013- Illuminate Reading: Active Strategies for Tackling Texts
  • August 1, 2013- Write On!

So what will you learn?
