Write to Learn Spring Edition

Our popular Write to Learn conference was held virtually in the fall of 2020.  Unfortunately, too many teachers found themselves swamped with the work of shifting instruction to online, in person, and hybrid due to the Covid restrictions and could not participate.

We are relaunching our fall line up and offering registration for an entire school so teachers can engage with successful teaching practices. Our emphasis is again on writing with English Language Learners.

Keynote speaker: Dr. Jessica Costa, English Learner Instructional Specialist in the Department of Learning and Innovation at the Virginia Department of Education
9:00 a.m. Saturday, March 6, 2021.  LIVE This session will be recorded and made available in the second week of the programming.

Your enrollment will permit access to online, pre-recorded teacher presentations. Attend at your own pace March 1-14
