Early Literacy Institutes in August and September 2018

As the landscape of education continues to change, Michigan has declared it will embark on a journey to become a Top 10 Education State in the next 10 years. The Michigan Department of Education, MAISA, and GELN Early Literacy Task Force are excited to offer two K-3 Essential Instructional Practices in Early Literacy Institutes on August 6-9, 2018, and September 24-27, 2018.  These 4 day institutes offer deeper learning around the K-3 Essential Instructional Practices in Early Literacy and are intended for individuals or district teams made up of Literacy Coaches, Lead Teachers, Special Education Directors, English Learner Practitioners and Leaders, Building Administrators, Curriculum Directors, and Superintendents.

I have spoken a number of times, as has MeL's K-12 Specialist Christine Schneider, on the Early Literacy Essentials<http://literacyessentials.org/> being used to guide the early literacy educational world here in Michigan.  These institutes are designed for educators, but I thought it an important topic to at least be on youth librarians' radars, perhaps pass along to your school contacts and collaborate in the future...

Thank you,
