GSU professor to be panelist for literacy webinar

 Permanent link

Professor Karen Peterson will be a panelist for a webinar from the National Center for Literacy Education April 30, at 11:30 a.m. Eastern time.

The webinar explores the idea of combining kids’ summer school and camp opportunities that strengthen their skills with teachers’ own workshops that strengthen their skills too. Both have been traditionally separate in the past. Webinar attendees will hear about how two initiatives are challenging the longstanding traditions of how summer learning is designed.

Dr. Peterson and Mike Hurst, induction/mentor coordinator for Dolton Riverdale District 148, will discuss the 2013 Literacy Launch program, which provided science and literacy focused activities for elementary students in a partnering school district while also supporting early career graduates of GSU’s alternative certification residency program.
