For educators interested in explicit literacy instruction for older students, we’re happy to welcome Melinda Cameron to #LitLearn2024 in April for her session!

Session: Explicit Literacy Instruction for Older Students

This professional workshop focuses on maximizing the effectiveness of explicit literacy skill instruction for older students, including those with exceptionalities. The case study of SpellRead program implementation in a Nova Scotia Regional Centre for Education context will be used to provide real actionable takeaways for classroom set-up and routines. Additionally, the often-overlooked topic of behaviour management will be addressed.

Melinda Cameron has dedicated her life to teaching literacy, and recently earned her Research Master of Arts in Education from Mount Saint Vincent University to further her knowledge of effective reading instruction.
