Literacy Development from Infancy through Age 8

Last Date:

1050 First St. NE
Fifth Floor, Nannie Helen Burroughs (Room 523)

In this session, participants will learn how literacy development interacts with culture, language diversity, and socioeconomic differences in home and school contexts, and the role of instruction in supporting children with and without disabilities from birth through grade 3 as they develop speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. This training is open to educators serving 0- to 8-year-old children in public schools, public charter schools, and Head Start Agencies in the District of Columbia, with an aim toward increasing coordination between LEAs and Head Start Agencies through joint professional development. Participants will be offered six Professional Learning Units for full attendance and completion.

This full-day training will take place on July 11, 2019, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., at OSSE, Fifth Floor, Nannie Helen Burroughs (Room 523). Participants will receive six OSSE professional learning units (PLUs). Registration is now open in the DC Early Learning Professional Development Information System (PDIS).

As a reminder, all LEA staff serving pre-K 3 through grade 3 may now create an account in PDIS and register for any relevant early childhood trainings available (instructions for creating an account, as well as a list of upcoming training opportunities, were announced in the May 1-7, 2019 LEA Look Forward).
For questions about this training, please contact Jenye Fletcher at [email protected]. For questions about registering in PDIS, please contact the OSSE Early Childhood Education Help Desk at (202) 478-5903 or [email protected].

Reminder: To help children transition from Head Start and other early childhood programs, Title I LEAs have signed a citywide coordination agreement. Title I LEAs have committed to participating in at least two early childhood joint professional development events per year. Several trainings available in PDIS, including the one listed above, can help LEAs fulfill this requirement. For more information on ESSA early learning coordination, please visit OSSE's website.
