2015 OST Conference Literacy Workshop Opportunities – October 24th

| September 18, 2015

The 2015 School’s Out, Make it Count Conference features a Literacy Track of workshops designed to inspire out-of-school time program staff to incorporate high-quality literacy activities into regular programming.

Conference Literacy Workshops Include:

  • Youth-Driven Literacy: Julia Gabor & Meredith Scott Lynn Write Brain Books
  • Literacy Enrichment through Drama: Sean Cronin Stories That Soar!
  • You Can’t Have Too Many Strategies for the Reluctant Reader: Linda Linnen National Geographic Learning

Literacy is one of the most important pillars in the education of every child. Low-income students across the U.S. are falling behind in basic literacy skills due to unequal opportunities to learn both at home and in the classroom. Afterschool programs are uniquely positioned to fill those opportunity gaps and support the acquisition of reading and writing skills among underserved youth to help them build a brighter future.

Want to make your program a hub for literacy skill development? Get started at the 2015 School’s Out, Make It Count Conference with these three sessions and walk away with concrete strategies to implement in your program!

Saturday, October 24, 8:00a.m.-3:30p.m.
