European Literacy Coaching Cohort 2013-15

European Literacy Coaching Cohort 2013-15
A CEESA and ECIS Joint Initiative

A knowledgeable, well-trained literacy coach can support the work of principals and curriculum specialists by providing deep and sustainable change in literacy instruction at the classroom level.
The first ECIS/CEESA international training program for literacy coaches started in the fall of 2011. The CEESA group of approximately 25 participants was comprised of teachers from different countries and schools across four regions in the international world. Under the direction of Carrie Ekey, Katherine Casey, and Shannon Stanton, these teachers completed the two-year program at the CEESA Spring Educators Conference in Prague in 2013. The opportunity for in-depth training over time and the chance to network with literary specialists form schools around the world have been especially valuable to the participants.

Music & Movement for Young Learners

Music & Movement for Young Learners
Consultant: Dr. Gifford
February 21-22, 2013 Singapore
February 25-26, 2013 Melbourne, Australia

Let’s get physical! Learn how to help young children use movement and creativity to relate to every aspect of music and other content areas. From melody and rhythm to dynamics and form, children can deepen and broaden their understanding of all kinds of music when they use their bodies and minds together. As children become musically literate, they respond actively by listening, reading, writing, creating, and arranging music. And once children have tuned in, teachers can capitalize on the motivating power of music to help children learn basic skills and concepts.
