Oklahoma Writing Project (OWP) has announced four host sites across Oklahoma will become available in June to host professional development for teachers.
According to OWP, the Digital Literacy Sessions scheduled will “provide hands-on literacy activities directly related to Oklahoma Academic Standards as well as (generate) ideas (on) how to increase digital literacy and stamina among students” being prepared for the future.
Increasing digital literacy and digital stamina will kick off June 3 in Norman and will make its way to Duncan Public Schools on June 10.
All conferences will include registration from 8:45 - 9 a.m., a general session from 9-9:20 a.m., a breakout session from 9:30-10:30 a.m. and another breakout session from 10:45-11:45 a.m.
According to OWP, break out sessions will be divided by “grade bands” meaning kindergarten through second will group together while third through fifth, sixth through eighth and ninth through 12th work together.
Sessions are prepared by Oklahoma Writing Project’s “teacher consultants with experience in Oklahoma classrooms.” Sessions are interactive and “everyone will leave with an idea to immediately implement.”
The conference is free, but seats are limited.
