 Kelly Gallagher


Kelly Gallagher: Teaching Practices and Instructional Strategies That Position Students Closer to Reading and Writing Excellence

How do we decide what and what not to teach? With increased expectations and so little time to meet them, we might heed the words of Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Bob Seger, who asks us to carefully consider our “deadlines and commitments—what to leave in, what to leave out.” In this keynote, Kelly will discuss critical decisions that underpin artful teaching, and how these decisions help to move young readers and writers closer to excellence.

April 24, 2017 from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

Location: DoubleTree Hotel, 200 Atrium Drive, Somerset, NJ
