Harvey "Smokey" Daniels
CNM’s Education programs will be hosting renowned literacy educator and author, Harvey “Smokey” Daniels, on April 4, from 7-8 pm in the Smith Brasher Hall Auditorium, Room 101. Smokey Daniels, a former urban and suburban classroom teacher and college professor, now works as a consultant and author on literacy education. He’s worked with elementary and secondary teachers throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe.

Attendees on April 4 will learn about six key strategies and will be able to take home images to use with reading lessons. Whatever the topic, there’s a universe of fantastic images educators can use to begin, drive, expand and conclude a unit – to keep kids in the driver’s seat. But the close reading of images requires much more than occasionally throwing cool pictures or artwork up on your classroom screen. There’s a subtle art to selecting, preparing, and presenting curricular images that genuinely amplify your content – and planning for student interaction around them. The event is free and open to the public, but please RSVP if you plan to attend.
