The Every Child Ready to Read Training of Trainers will be on Friday, September 20, 2013 at the Oregon State Library. The training will be presented by Specialized Master Trainer Heather McNeil, youth services manager at Deschutes Public Library, professional storyteller, and author of Read, Rhyme and Romp: Early Literacy Skills and Activities for Librarians, Teachers, and Parents. Participation is limited to 20 approved applicants. The save the date announcement is on the Oregon Registry website (http://www.pdx.edu/occd/oregon-registry-trainer-program-6). Application materials will be posted on the Oregon Registry website in June. Please spread the word!

This training if for staff at libraries and other agencies and organizations that provide parent education or training for family, friends, and neighbor providers. Participants will receive Set Two continuing education credit and will become Every Child Ready to Read Standardized Trainers certified by the Oregon Registry train to their colleagues and peers to use the Every Child Ready to Read curriculum with parents and family, friends, and neighbor providers for Set One continuing education credit.

Those of you familiar with Reading for Healthy Families may like to know that this will be a very scaled back training in comparison. There are no requirements to conduct trainings afterwards. The actual training will be much more focused on the curriculum and will not include all the bells and whistles like flannel boards and Washington Learning System's On-the-Go activities. The goal is to make sure the Standardized Trainers understand the curriculum well enough to train their colleagues, answer their colleagues' questions about the curriculum, and help their colleagues become comfortable using the curriculum to teach parents how to develop their child's early literacy skills.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Please refer anyone else who has questions to me too.

Thank you,

Note: If you want training in Every Child Ready to Read so you can use it with parents and childcare providers in your community this training is NOT for you. This training will create a cadre of people certified to conduct the training you need... which means hopefully the training you need will be available after September 20th!
