Speaking Calendar

These days, I mostly do residencies in NY/NJ/CT near my home. A couple times each month, I travel to speak at state and national conferences, provide workshops through Heinemann, and/or to do presentations for entire districts. If you’re interested in seeing when I’ll be near you, check out the calendar below. If there is a link, you can register to attend. Some dates that are farther out on the calendar may be open to the public although they do not yet have a website up to accept registrants.

If traveling to me isn’t possible because of your budget or schedule, there are many opportunities to learn online. Learn more about live webinars through Heinemann here. I’m also really proud of my contributions to Heinemann’s On-Demand Course line-up. My newest online course, based on The Reading and Writing Strategies Books is Strategies in Action: Reading and Writing Methods and Content. It is offered as a full-length course, and also as eight stand-alone single-session courses. My other on-demand course is titled the same as my second book, Teaching Reading in Small GroupsBoth courses include dozens of videos of me working with students of all ages.

If you’re interested in inviting me to speak at your conference or do professional development in your school or district, please contact me through the “contact”  link at the top of the page.
