Symposium Series: "Language: The Missing Piece of Academics"

Date & Time: 
Mar 10 2017 - 9:00am - 3:30pm

Welcome to our 2017 Stern Center for
Language and Learning Symposium! This year we are expanding our focus on
language to promote reading comprehension, cognitive processes involved in
silent reading, and technology-based interventions to support these areas that
are immediately implementable. Our presenters use current research to expand
your practice.



It is surprising
that language has not been more deserving of our attention. Listening is, after
all, the way in which children learn from their elders and from their teachers.
Their strength as listeners and speakers has important implications for their
ability to understanding content, whether it be language by ear or language by

This workshop
will focus on language as a skill in its own right, a skill that not only
supports social interaction, but one that has the potential to foreshadow
problems with reading comprehension and writing long before children have
mastered the basic phonics skills. Participants will learn about the structure
of language, the role that language plays in reading, writing, and math, how it
is assessed, and activities to promote language development.

Cost: $300 for Series or $125 per workshop
