About this Event

We invite you to join us for PPIRA’s 2019 Literacy Conference, “Growing Writers: Supporting the Needs of Writers in the Classroom.” The conference is located at the beautifully historic Julie Penrose Estate on October 19th from 8:00 A.M – 3:30 P.M. A light breakfast will be served and lunch is included in the cost of the conference.

Like a gardener tends to flowers in a garden, educators support writers who have unique and specialized needs who are growing differently. Conference participants will have the opportunity to choose from sessions focused on supporting the unique needs of writers at a variety of developmental levels using classroom-tested strategies. Breakout sessions will be presented by local educators with extensive experience in these areas from across the Pikes Peak Region and Denver area.

Intended Audience: K-12 educators and administrators

Objectives:

  • Describe, compare, and contrast strategies to meet the needs of unique learners presented in each session and evaluate their application in the classroom
  • Analyze interrelationships between the needs of unique populations of students and research-based strategies to address them
  • Develop plans for the implementation of learned strategies in the classroom and opportunities to share with colleagues

Licensure recertification (7.5 hours) or Adams State College credit (0.5) are available for attending the complete PPIRA Fall Literacy Conference. Forms and certificates of participation will be distributed at the end of the conference.
