I need to take professional development classes to enhance my skills in the area of literacy.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My classroom has the words LOOK, LEARN and LAUGH printed largely in the room. I strive for my room to be a place where students are encouraged to be inquisitive, wonder, think and enjoy themselves and each other.
My students are a busy, motivated group who desire and need more resources.
My fourth graders love working in groups and sharing their learning experiences. Students at our elementary are digital learners, born into a digital world. They have diverse learning needs with various learning abilities. Our students expect and thrive on instant knowledge, feedback, and assistance. We are a small school in a rural farming community.
I want to take a couple of professional development classes this summer through online sources. The classes are meant for teachers to reflect on ways that they can do better in certain areas of their teaching. The area that I am reflecting on is literacy. I want to be able to increase my knowledge with teaching phonics and reflect on best practices for my reading instruction.
Both of these classes are meant to help me find best practices within the area of literacy.
The classes, " Focus on Phonics for Effective Reading, Writing, and Spelling Instruction," and "What Great Teachers Do," will help me be a better literacy teacher next fall.
