Professional Learning Opportunities
Y Read? is a course designed to encourage educators to have meaningful conversations about reading. The materials include a Facilitator’s Guide, Participant’s Guide and embedded links and videos to support the course (materials included with the school Chapter fee and available on the Alberta Reads Network portal).
Children’s Reading Place: Book this space for a one of a kind PL opportunity. Topics covered include:
- What is joyful literacy?
- What are the characteristics of environments that support joyful literacy?
Educators will explore their own literacy experiences and be inspired by examining how the Children’s Reading Place invites them to think differently about how we can get books into the hands of students and make time and place for reading. Starting in August 2019 the cost for this PL opportunity is $500 for a half day (Alberta Reads Network school) and $600 (non-Alberta Reads Network school).
