Webinar Description:

Join husband and wife team Marianne and Keith Nice as they dive into the “how-tos” of online literacy instruction. Marianne and Keith will take you through the parts of a structured literacy lesson and provide sample activities you can use with your students. They will demonstrate adapting the materials you already have for use via webcam, describe how to use your tablet apps with platforms such as Zoom, and recommend online resources, apps, programs, and websites that offer free or cost-effective solutions. This webinar is designed to increase interaction and engagement while also maintaining the research-based methodology you are accustomed to delivering to your students. Save your seat for this exciting webinar!
