The Berry Street Education Model Masterclasses are one-day offerings for participants who have already completed the Berry Street Education Model four-day training course.
These special masterclass days are valuable opportunities for educators to extend their knowledge, re-connect and further their application of the model. Our masterclasses are a great way to collaborate with like-minded educators in our growing community of practice.
While each class has a different focus, we have designed the program to be informed by research, anchored in practice, and aimed at building sustainability and consistency in the Berry Street Education Model across a whole-school approach.
Increasing student stamina for literacy and reading (Secondary Focus)
In this Masterclass, Maddie Witter, author of Reading Without Limits (Jossey-Bass, 2013) and Senior Advisor at Berry Street, will teach you how to launch, build and maintain a culture of independent reading in your classrooms and schools reinforcing BSEM’s third domain - Stamina.
Participants will leave with a list of practical strategies that can be used to launch a thriving independent reading culture, a cultivated, culturally responsive classroom library booklist and solutions for common independent reading pitfalls. This workshop will help you dramatically improve student stamina, so that you can develop a culture of persistence and love of learning for all students.
Included in the cost of your registration is a copy of Reading Without Limits.
This workshop will have a focus on Secondary Schools. A Primary focused workshop will be held on the 14th June.
