Department of Education / SDSLHA Workshop

The South Dakota Department of Education and South Dakota Speech-Language-Hearing Association will once again partner on February 25, 2022 for a virtual workshop entitled Shared Book Reading 2.0. This virtual workshop will be presented by Susan Hendler Lederer, PhD.

Title: Shared Book Reading 2.0

Course Description: Shared book reading is a powerful tool for nurturing both language and literacy goals. In the morning, we will discuss a systematic approach to choosing and using picture books to facilitate specific goals and reflect on our favorite books. (Please bring your favorite!) In the afternoon, we will explore why and how mindfulness and yoga can be integrated into the shared book reading experience to nurture the whole child. (Dress comfortably; no yoga experience required!). The full course description, learner outcomes, and CEU information is available here.

Cost: This Virtual Workshop is FREE of charge but registration is required.

Registration: Registration will close on February 24. Register for Shared Book Reading 2.0 now
