Bethel Springs Elementary School, GVSD - July 8 - 12, 2019

This week Garnet Valley School District's, Bethel Springs Elementary School, hosted the Homegrown Institute: Teachers College Reading and Writing Project (TCRWP.) Teachers from our schools gathered all week to learn, share and interact with colleagues and instructors in an effort to provide our students with a personalized learning experience within the reading and writing studies.

Instructors Purnima Vohra and Kristin Smith worked closely with our teachers, during the ELA writing institute, using tools to enhance their methods of teaching in the classroom. Two groups, grades K-2 and grades 3-5, worked diligently as they learned how to plan and structure a lesson, develop their own method of teaching, and how to approach and implement a reading analysis.

We would like to say thank you to all of the teachers that participated in this week's workshops, we are grateful that our students will have access to the resources and structure they need to be skilled and successful in their literary and writing studies.
