Happy New Year to all & a brief message about my upcoming speaking engagements: By Dr. Sam Bommarito
I want to wish you all a very Happy Happy New Year. In the coming months, I will be doing more blog posts about my centrist position on the issue of how to teach reading. I’m also lining up interviews of authors of new professional books. The books will include a wide variety of topics and points of view.
For your information, I am starting the new year by speaking at two different literacy events. Here is some information about them:
I’ll be a featured speaker at LitCon in January. LitCon has 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.
Have a great New Year!
