More Workshops to Transform Literacy at Conservatory Lab
On Thursday, the Transforming Literacy Project (TLP) at Conservatory Lab hosted four second grade teachers from the T. J. Kenny School in Dorchester for the latest in a series of one-day professional development workshops. This follows a workshop for first grade teachers, held in Brighton two weeks ago. TLP staff have been sharing some of our school’s successful early literacy practices with other schools in the area, including Conservatory Lab’s snake expedition. Kenny teachers launched this expedition in December, and Thursday’s workshop focused on close reading and the critique and revision process, which will help Kenny students write and illustrate books about their research on the corn snake. The Transforming Literacy Project is made possible by a grant from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
