Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 2 Educator Symposiums Schedule for 2017 Summer

We are pleased to announce an invitation for school-based teams to attend our Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 2 Educator Symposiums. These PreK-Grade 2 Educator Symposiums will focus on essential practices to support principals and teachers of early learners with research, skills, and strategies to increase student achievement. 

The objectives for the two days:

  • Explore the brain research focused on children from age 4-8 to understand developmentally appropriate instruction
  • Recognize how developmentally appropriate instruction in PreK-2 impacts future learning
  • Identify developmentally appropriate instructional techniques and strategies that can be implemented in the PreK-2 classroom to support brain development
  • This is a two-day event, lunch included, occurring regionally across Maryland. School teams must register for both Day 1 and Day 2 events. There will be two strands of sessions: PreK-K and Grades 1-2.  By attending these symposiums, could earn CPD credits.


Administrators will attend with two PreK-Grade 2 educators (this can include a special educator or English learner teacher) and are encouraged to invite an educator from a community-based PreK classroom. Community-based PreK teachers should contact their local elementary school principal for more information.
