Learning Events

We are passionate about ensuring educators have the tools they need to be successful in their work with young children who are learning to read and write. Every year we develop professional learning sessions for an audience of early literacy educators, Reading Recovery trained professionals, early childhood educators, childcare providers and others involved in the education of young children.

We are delighted to announce the line up of online professional learning sessions for 2021-22! On Mondays from October to March you can participate in online learning sessions featuring leading literacy experts on a wide range of topics. The 90 minute sessions will be recorded and available for repeat viewing until the end of August 2022. Each live session is presented on Zoom and provides the opportunity to ask questions and dig deeper into the topics presented. Pick and choose your sessions below, each session is only $30 and you can select all or just the ones that interest you. Remember, if you are not able to attend the live session you will still be able to access the recorded version of the session until the end of the year (unless otherwise noted in the session description.

Also new this year – Workshop Wednesdays. These are hands on, interactive workshop sessions that are limited to 25 participants. This is your opportunity to go in depth on a topic, bring examples from your own teaching to learn more and practice skills in a supportive group with a literacy expert.

If your school district would like to purchase several learning sessions or recordings for your school team please have them get in touch by email: cirr@rrcanada.org to make arrangements for a discounted price and make arrangements for payment.

I loved how specific the presentation was. I can go in my classroom tomorrow with specific strategic activity to pay attention to and observe in my students. I was hoping to advance my knowledge and practice and this session definitely allowed for that.

Powerful presentation. Handout was wonderful. Really, jam-packed with information – lots to chew on. I especially liked the samples from children’s books and children’s running records and reading.
