ALLL Professional Development Workshops

"Active engagement - all students will be motivated to participate"
As part of the ALLL program, LeAp conducts 14 all-day PD workshops at New York University (7 workshops conducted twice a month).  The sessions link ALLL’s
hands-on arts approach to the literacy skill development by using grade appropriate teaching strategies; games for kindergartners that improved the students' knowledge of nouns and verbs or activities for 5th graders which helped them understand how to look for common themes and link them to a specific text. ALLL teaching consultants and classroom teachers also meet to review the progress of the program, strategize on how they can apply what they have learnt in the sessions, and come up with a month-long lesson plans. 
"Simple materials that could easily be applied to the classroom"
"Very hands on and interactive;  informative and broken down step by step"
"Organized, fun ways to incorporate art/student made projects with literacy"
