Teaching Your Child to Read

Reading is the core of learning, yet it can be complex to teach. Come and explore the elements of teaching reading along with teaching strategies to ensure success. Whether you are just starting out with a young child or have a student who struggles to read, this talk will give you the tools you need to succeed.

Grading Compositions

One of the biggest problems with having students write compositions is having to grade them. Unlike math, there is no answer key. There are grammar rules, but writing is more than just verb tense and punctuation. Instead of just grading a paper, help your students edit their work to make it better. After all, everyone needs an editor. This talk will provide you with the tools needed to help your students write well.
