Please mark your calendars if you haven’t yet attended an Ohio Ready to Read Early Literacy 101 workshop.  This training provides essential early literacy information that is valuable for all staff who plan & present storytimes and other programs for children.  Participants will learn how brain development impacts how young children learn, and will explore effective, research-based early literacy resources and activities. The workshop covers the Six Early Literacy Skills presented in the PLA/ALSC Every Child Ready to Read® 1st edition, and the Five Early Literacy Practices presented in the 2nd edition, along with other early literacy concepts and storytime tips. Ohio Ready to Read trainer Deborah Dubois of Mansfield/Richland County Public Library will lead the Perry Cook workshop. ORTR trainers Carrie Burrier of Akron-Summit County Public Library and Mandie Burns of Dayton Metro Library will lead the Cincinnati workshop. ORTR trainers Julia Shaheen and Marianna DiGiacomo of Stark County District Library will lead the NEO-RLS workshop. Learn more about the Early Literacy 101 workshop.
