Engaging Young Learners Workshop Sparks Minds

Author Isabel Beck led an informative workshop at Southern Westchester BOCES, designed to help district leaders engage young students.

On March 20, Dr. Beck, the author of “Bringing Words to Life,” met with administrators and their teams to explore research-based instruction about connecting with young learners by using diverse instructional strategies.

 Dr. Beck shared ideas on practices like the shift from “learning to read” to “reading to learn” and followed up with real-world scenarios to help K-2 educators improve student-learning outcomes.

 Teachers shared positive feedback after the workshop, stating that they were excited to return to their classrooms and implement Dr. Beck’s theories.
