Happy Holidays to all & a brief message about my upcoming speaking engagements By Dr. Sam Bommarito
I want to wish you all a very Happy Holiday season. I also want to thank you all for taking the time to consider the centrist message from this blog. There have been over 50,000 views this year- a new record!
For your information, I’ll be speaking at two different literacy events. Here is some information about them:
I’ll be a featured speaker at LitCon in January. LitCon has been changed to a virtual format this year. I hope you can come to my session. You can also come for the session I’m doing in collaboration with Paul Thomas. Both have to do with the efficacy of Reading Recovery and the issues surrounding the teaching of beginning reading.
I’m also presenting in March at the Write to Learn Conference in my home state of Missouri. My session at that Conference is “Helping All Readers (Especially Older Readers) Improve Both Their Decoding and Comprehension Skills.”
In this session, I will share highlights about what makes for effective instruction in decoding and comprehension. I will address what to do for older students who missed out on such effective instruction. Below you will find information about this in-person conference and a link to the conference.
