Participants will also practice strategies to make themselves more confident writers.

In the 1-week, 30-hour READING INSTITUTE, to be held July 18-22, participants will engage in exploration, research, and practice of effective strategies for teaching reading comprehension and teaching reading in all genres and content areas for Grade 2-12 students.
