The Maine Department of Education invites educators to register for the 2018 Summer Literacy Institute. Proven Practices: Accelerate Student Literacy with Visible Learning is a two-day event that builds from Dr. John Hattie’s ground-breaking research which identifies effectiveness of strategies and influences on education. Drawing from materials developed by Doug Fisher and Nancy Frey, certified consultants Marisol Thayre and Olivia Amador-Valerio will help participants better understand how to:
- apply the most effective Visible Learning practices highlighted by John Hattie’s research;
- enhance close reading and small group instructional practices to honor surface, deep, and transfer level learning; and
- use resources effectively to support continuous learning progress.
Content will be drawn from Text Dependent Questions: Pathways to Close and Critical Reading (K-5 and 6-12), Teaching Literacy in the Visible Learning Classroom, and Engagement by Design as well as other Fisher and Frey texts.
The Institute will be on August 7 & 8 at Jeff’s catering in Brewer.
