Dear WITS Volunteers,
On Tuesday, September 24, we will be launching our 2013-14Expert Training Series for WITS volunteers featuring Dr. Mary Hynes-Berry from the Erikson Institute. In this interactive workshop, we will be looking at how the strategy “Reading an Object” can be used to lead readers to explore objects and ideas in a very interactive way. You will experience and explore strategies that can make reading and writing come to life. You will be provided with activities that can be used and adapted for children at different reading levels. The training is designed for both new and long time WITS volunteers and will equip you to have an increased impact on your students.
