TWU Reading Department schedules Summer Institute

6/10/05


DENTON — Helping children who struggle with reading and writing is the focus of the Texas Woman’s University’s Reading Department’s Summer Institute, scheduled Thursday and Friday, June 16-17 on TWU’s Denton campus. Teams of reading specialists, classroom teachers and administrators from throughout Texas will construct a plan designed to ensure literacy learning for all children in their schools.

The workshop, titled “Readers and Writers Who Struggle: It Takes a Team,” will be held in the Margo Jones Auditorium in the Music Building, located at Oakland and Sawyer streets. Registration and check-in will begin at 7:30 a.m. in the lobby area. Registration is $240. To register, or for more information, contact the TWU Office of Lifelong Learning at (800) 250-7808 or (940) 898-3408, or go to www.twu.edu/o-ll/summerinstitute.htm.

The institute will feature Eminent Scholars Carol Lyons and Billie Askew, and will focus on Lyons’ research that recently was published in “Teaching Struggling Readers … How to Use Brain-based Research to Maximize Learning.” Participants will study how to maximize student achievement by addressing issues related to emotion, building on students’ strengths, language and teaching and leadership. The content will focus on grades K-3. Graduate credit is offered for the institute.
