Sign up for Nikki Grimes workshop- The Power of Poetry: A Tool for Helping Young People Process Trauma (details in the blog) by Dr. Sam Bommarito
(I normally post my blog entries every Saturday morning. I will do so tomorrow. But today, I’m doing an extra blog entry to get the word out about this Write to Learn event).
As many of my readers know, I am the President of the Missouri Literacy Association. Every year MLA co-sponsors the Write to Learn Conference. This year the Conference was virtual. It consisted of a series of 4 different speakers. That part is now over.
Because of the positive response to the initial conference series, it has been decided to add a 5th series featuring three different authors. On Feb. 11, Allan Wolf will present “Active Voice: Immersing Young Readers and Writers in Language and Content.” On Feb., 18th John Claude Bemis will present “Exercising that Imagination.” Then Feb. 25th, Nikki Grimes will present “The Power of Poetry: A Tool for Helping Young People Process Trauma. The full description of the series is in the screen capture below. Interested? Sign up using the link below- One low price for all three workshops. See the sessions page link for dates, times and descriptions of all three workshops.

The previous Write to Learn (WtL) sessions have been both meaningful and enjoyable. The presenters shared their unique experiences and ideas and strategies teachers/educators can immediately use and implement. The WtL was well worth the minimal cost and my time. I recommend the future sessions to anyone interested and committed to literacy.
