On August 8-10, 2014 and again on October 12-12, 2014, Highlights Foundation teams up with Rosemary Agoglia of The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art to raise the bar on visual and verbal literacy. This conference is held at the Highlights Foundation conference center in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

THE POWER OF PICTURE BOOKS: LINKS TO LITERACY AND LEARNING is a groundbreaking professional development workshop that uses the picture book to support literacy development alongside critical and creative thinking skills.

The goal of THE POWER OF PICTURE BOOKS is to increase our children’s positive interaction with books and inspire meaningful discussions by exploring the untapped potential of picture books.

The workshop tackles the integration of knowledge and ideas and addresses speaking and listening skills—all part of the Common Core State Standards.

Come see what educators are calling “a life changing experience.” At the same time, you have the option of earning three graduate education credits by staying an extra day!

Plus! Local airport ground transportation, all meals, lodgings, and amenities included. For details about the workshop, click here.
