FREE WEBINARS

Free Webinar - You CAN Be a Great Math Teacher - Weds., 3/6, 11 AM PT

Free Webinar - You CAN Be a Great Math Teacher

Please join Kathleen Cotter Lawler, from RightStart™ Mathematics for a free webinar. What DOES it take to be the best teacher for your child? Find out the science and the art of teaching math. It is a science because much research has been done on how children learn, especially in math. It is an art because each child is different and lessons need to be tweaked. Come learn and be encouraged to become a great math teacher.

New Free Webinar - Building a Reading Brain - Weds., 4/17, 11 AM PT
 

Reading is not hard-wired in our brains. Everyone who learns to read has to build the mental pathways that enable reading to happen. Join Betsy Hill, neuro-educator and President of BrainWare Learning Company for a webinar exploring the what is often considered “the basics” of reading – decoding and fluency and comprehension – as well as “the even more basic basics”– the cognitive processes that support reading. Finally, we discuss the stages of learning to read and how to support emerging readers.
