Description

Literacy is an important skill for students to cultivate, but most teachers don’t have a strong literacy plan in place. Dr. Katherine McKnight says that one of the best ways to build up literacy skills is by using learning centers that specifically target areas where students are weak. 
In the course “Literacy and Learning Centers: Where Content Knowledge and Literacy Skills Intersect,” she shares both theoretical models of learning and practical examples of centers that you can start using in your classroom today. You’ll learn why literacy and learning centers are an effective instruction method for your classroom, and how to build content and knowledge. 
After taking this course, you’ll walk away understanding:
  • The Balanced Literacy framework
  • Gradual Release of Responsibility model
  • How to set up centers in your classroom
  • What students say about centers
