Educators from Sevastopol, Gibraltar, and Sturgeon Bay hope to get a helping hand on their students’ writing skills when literacy education advocate Kelly Gallagher conducts a conference in Institute August 28. During the conference, teachers from the three school districts will learn about how to connect reading and writing together and what goes into students’ own efforts. In addition to being able to collaboratively with other Door County school districts, Sevastopol Middle and High School Principal Adam Baier says inviting Gallagher was a logical next-step based on their previous work improving reading literacy.
The conference takes place a week before classes begin for area schools on September 5.
