Professional Development Center for Educators

Do you want to build bookworms?


Register here and join us online August 11-14, 2020, to immerse yourself in the theory and practical application of the Bookworms K-5 Reading and Writing curriculum. This virtual summer institute will include two full-day sessions for new and experienced teachers of the Bookworms curriculum.

These virtual professional learning events*, led by the program author Dr. Sharon Walpole and her team of coaches at the Professional Development Center for Educators, will have specific tracks open to teachers, administrators, and coaches. For the first two days, August 11-12, we will work with teachers who are new hires in existing Bookworms schools. We will focus on what they need to do to prepare for the first month of school. For the second two days, August 13-14, we will work with returning Bookworms teachers and focus on ways they can enhance and improve their practice as they greet the new school year.

Register early!  Each grade-level and leadership group is limited to 30 participants.


*A strong internet connection for full access to materials and videos is required for virtual training.
