Momenta Literacy Conference_ NYC

Momenta, a professional development initiative energizing K-12 educators working in student literacy, is holding a literacy conference series on October 20, 2017 in New York City and November 3, 2017 in Chicago.

Keynoting the events are literacy experts Kate Roberts and Maggie Beattie Roberts. The full-day agenda is designed for teachers and instructional coaches to deepen their understanding of effective literacy strategies, differentiated teaching methods, and powerful writing instruction.

Attendees will return to the classroom with new strategies and tools to strengthen instruction and with resources to empower students toward independent learning.

Breakout sessions will feature these literacy experts:

Kate Roberts and Maggie Beattie Roberts are literacy consultants who began their careers as middle school teachers in urban centers. They support teachers, administrators, and students in K-12 classrooms and focus on skill and strategy-based literacy instruction, literacy across the content areas, and differentiated teaching methods. These strengths shine through during their presentations and in their latest book, DIY Literacy.

Colleen Cruz began her career as a classroom teacher before joining the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project where she is Senior Lead Staff Developer. She currently supports schools, teachers, and their students nationally and internationally as a literacy consultant. She is the author of several titles for teachers including the recently published The Unstoppable Writing Teacher.

Tickets for each event are $199 per person.
