Comment from a participant from the live event:
"I LOVED this webinar!! It doesn't get more practical, useful, or fun than what has been offered to us this evening. Hanna has certainly keyed into the fact that our students are most engaged when learning is put into a game format; this is the way to make it stick! Also a good reminder to never throw anything away - amazing how she has thought of a multitude of ways to repurpose a variety of items."
How to Create & Motivate Readers with Creative, Engaging Activities!
In this 2-hour unique, fun, and practical webinar, attendees will learn to use explicit teaching strategies and activities to engage readers at multiple levels. You will be amazed at the number of creative and easy "take-away" activities shared during this exciting presentation! The activities will focus on multisensory and creative games, which will hook even the most reluctant learners. Each participant will be provided with a list of multi-purpose activities and games to purchase or reproduce and will be shown how to manipulate something they already own in order to motivate student learning. Educators will increase their confidence to teach specific concepts with a mini-lesson, model a complementary game or activity, explore ways to encourage student participation and provide feedback to enhance student learning.
Presenter: Hanna Stroud operates a private tutoring and consulting company in Calgary, Alberta providing one-on-one tutoring sessions for over forty students with a focus on literacy skills. With her background in Special Education and Literacy for the Calgary Board of Education for over twelve years and a National Trainer for Reading with TLC, Hanna has worked with a variety of learning styles in one-on-one, small group or classroom settings. One of her passions is to provide creative and engaging activities for children experiencing learning difficulties to increase their confidence, curiosity and foundational knowledge of reading and writing strategies. Using explicit teaching methods and a multisensory approach to all content areas, students are equipped with the necessary skill set to become strong and engaged readers and writers. In addition to working with students, Hanna also offers professional development workshops and support for educators. These group and individualized training sessions raise literacy awareness, increase confidence and develop teaching approaches. Hanna loves to share her knowledge of interactive resources, book lists and assistive technology, all aimed at enriching the lives of students, parents and educators. Hanna is the creator of My Tutoring Space which is popular now on Pinterest. This will also be the name of her soon to be available blog and her upcoming TeachersPayTeachers Store.
