INFOhio has partnered with Scholastic, the Educational Service Center of Northeast Ohio, Stark County Educational Service Center and the Great Start for Great Futures Coalition to offer a day of free professional development for teachers, administrators, curriculum directors, school librarians and other educational staff working with preK-5 students.

Join fellow educators in activities that include exploring best practices, learning more about resources that support Ohio’s Learning Standards, discovering how to use and integrate Scholastic’s resources into the classroom, and preparing to build literacy and engage students with ready-to-implement strategies. Lester Laminack, read-aloud expert and author of more than 17 academic books and seven children’s books, will be the opening keynote speaker.
Sessions are designed for preK-5 literacy educators. Individuals have two opportunities to take part:

  • Tuesday, Oct. 29, 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., Stark County ESC, North Canton.
