SIM Virtual Professional Learning for Educators

Audience:  Florida Educators 

Topic: The FRAMing Routine

Let’s face it, many students take disorganized notes and cannot possibly use their notes to master critical content!  Regardless of literacy level, the SIM FRAMing Routine helps students organize, think, talk, and write about a key topic and related essential information. Join us on Zoom for an afternoon of interactive professional learning you can immediately use to help ALL of your students remember, organize and see relationships among pieces of critical course content.

Teacher reading with two students

To close out Literacy Week, here are a few ideas of how to support literacy all year long, courtesy of A Teacher's Wonderland:

  • Have students dress up as their favorite book character and have a Book Parade.
  • Invite a local author or Skype with them!
  • Compare alphabets from other languages.
  • Have students bring in a book from their parents' heritage.
  • Invite parents to come and read a book that they read as a child to the class.
