Manitoba Association of Multi-age Educators is proud to present the following Workshop:

Using Assessment to Target Effective Reading and Writing Instruction

Wednesday, May 10th, 2017

4:30pm – 6:30 pm

HS. Paul School – 160 Southglen Blvd.

Presented by: Valdine Bjornson, Christine van de Vijsel, and Jeanne Remillard

(Reading Clinicians and members of The Dyslexia Champions of Manitoba)

As an advocacy group of parents and professionals, The Dyslexia Champions of Manitoba’s goals are to raise awareness of dyslexia and to promote teacher training.  

Due to overwhelming interest, we are offering this follow-up session as a continuation in a series regarding “Dyslexia in the Classroom”. Coming up at the MTS PD Day we are hoping to offer another component: effective reading and writing instruction.

Using the response to intervention (RTI) model, presenters will outline an assessment approach which can be used to target instruction. Our goal with this session is to help educators of all capacities, including classroom teachers and specialists, identify students who might require specific Tier 2 or 3 intervention. We will provide a model for screening and progress monitoring for those who struggle with reading and writing.   This presentation is based upon current practice in a Manitoba public school division.


There is a $20.00 workshop fee

Registration Deadline: May 3rd, 2017

Spaces are limited.
