CHICAGO and PETERBOROUGH, N.H., May 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Education trends come and go, but mastery of core pillars of education are always essential for student achievement, and no where is this more prevalent than at the annual National Conference on Reading, Writing, Math & More! taking place July 6-8, 2016 in Chicago, IL. The three-day event hosted by Staff Development for Educators (SDE) will provide teachers and administrators of kindergarten through fifth grade foundational and advanced strategies for addressing the constant demands of the core topic areas of reading, writing and math.
Through more than 80 hands-on and engaging sessions presented by more than ten education experts and authors, educators will be given research-based techniques and resources to jumpstart critical thinking and develop literacy and math skills throughout the content areas. Interactive sessions will also address increasing student learning opportunities through effective time management, technology integration, exciting games and centers, and the application of best practices in differentiated instruction.
During the event held in downtown Chicago, attendees will discover innovative ways to prepare and manage a child-centered learning environment that provides students with hands-on opportunities to grow academically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively. The conference is headlined by award-winning educator and popular author Principal Baruti Kafele, and features top experts Danny Brassell, Ph.D., Lori Elliott, Ed.D., and Katie McKnight, Ph.D. Kafele and Brassell will deliver keynote presentations that focus on an educator's role in the everyday development of children through bringing joy to the classroom, and how to be intentionally excellent in all that one does as an educator.
Other popular presenters include award-winning educator and motivator Debbie Silver, Ed.D., Kathy Griffin, Lynne Ecenbarger, Donna Whyte, Pat Pavelka, and Sandi Reyes. Award-winning author Candace Fleming (of Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! fame) will present and be signing copies of her books. The line-up of expert presenters will share a diverse set of classroom-tested strategies, including small-group management in reading or math, techniques for behavior management or reducing anxiety, tactics for identifying holes in foundational skills and applying appropriate intervention strategies, and ways for making classroom teaching more effective.
