Workshops and Training

The Threads of Reading

Workshops and Training Opportunities

Looking for workshops and training opportunities to enhance reading instruction in your school? I offer workshops, consultations, online training, and focused webinars to help schools learn more about effective reading instruction.

Due to the travel restrictions and social distancing requirements imposed around the world due to the Covid 19 pandemic, I am now providing customized workshops and training via online webinars and telephone consultations until the pandemic is over.

Some format options for workshops and training are Skype or Zoom presentations, focused webinars, phone or online consultations, web-based author chats, or the online facilitation of book studies using any of my books on the teaching of reading.

I can also customize workshops or webinars to meet specific interests or needs. I can also work with administrators or school teams on school improvement plans and training.

I am also providing teacher professional development in the form of online classes. Teachers can enroll in my online training courses to improve their professional development skills in teaching reading, instructional coaching, and improving student reading performance.
