Professional Learning Conferences

Zaner-Bloser can facilitate and provide all of the session content for a primary literacy professional learning conference in your district or diocese.

More and more multi-campus institutions are choosing to bring educators together in a central location for conference-style professional learning days. Conference sessions are typically shorter, concentrated best practices seminars and can include customized content. Teachers select the topics that interest them most.

“Superkids professional development is not just an orientation to the curriculum materials, it is sound teaching of the science behind the ‘what’ and ‘why’ of those materials.”
