There are many excellent professional learning opportunities for teachers this fall offered by the Reading Council of Greater Winnipeg and the Manitoba Reading Association. Our MTS PD Day Event with Karen Filewych will surely delight teachers who are interested in fine-tuning their writing instruction. The Manitoba Reading Association's Professional Learning Series, which features webinars spread throughout the school year, will also respond to many teachers' curiosities. We look forward to seeing you at these events!
Registration is now open for our MTS PD Day event on Friday, October 22, 2021. The Reading Council of Greater Winnipeg will be welcoming Karen Filewych who will present a full-day online webinar (using Zoom) on How Do I Get Them To Write? K-8.
