MCPER and Humanities Texas are set to begin the third round of their popular workshops on best practices in reading instruction for fourth- through sixth-grade educators. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the workshops will be held online.

The series will consist of eight 2-hour sessions beginning October 7. The final session will be held on February 24. Participants are expected to attend all sessions. Presenters will include MCPER Chief Operating Officer Jennifer Schnakenberg and longtime MCPER collaborators Diane Haager and María Elena Argüelles.

The workshops will feature interactive sessions on word study and recognition, vocabulary, and reading comprehension with an emphasis on social studies texts, struggling readers, English language learners, and students who fell behind as a result of recent instructional disruptions. Each workshop will build on the previous session and align with the reading and comprehension Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills.  

Participating teachers will receive CPE credit and curricular materials.
