IDAHO PUBLIC TELEVISION WORKSHOPS

Workshop Schedule

VIEW-DO-READ
Learn to write a video/book/activity thematic lesson plan. Fun activities reinforce the VIEW-DO-READ triangle of television + books + activities. We'll build a volcano and a tall paper tower that children from 3 to 93 can create and enjoy. You'll even get a free children's book and a video that you can use with the activity the very next day!

TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR TELEVISION!
Language to Literacy brings exciting news about how you can support you child's language development right from birth! In this workshop we will explore developmental milestones of language development with fun activities and ideas to help reinforce the learning at each age and stage. When you child recognizes the McDonald's sign or "scribbles" a letter to Granny, she is taking a giant step on the road to literacy. A discussion of "The Literate Home" includes tips on how to encourage these and other important activities. We'll talk about how television fits into the picture and how to make it a positive influence in your home. Materials and handouts are available in both English and Spanish.

ANGER CONTROL
Each person on this planet is unique and special! As children begin to notice differences in people, they need help to understand and appreciate those differences. Learn how to help children gain a strong, positive self-concept as well as to respect and interact comfortably with people different from themselves. We will identify key aspects of a child's identity --- race, ethnicity and "abilities" and have FUN in the process!

RAISING READERS
Join us for a fun interactive workshop filled with tips and techniques for promoting children's literacy and language development from birth through elementary school. You'll also learn how to make television a learning tool, and use it as a springboard to reading for the reluctant reader. Plus--you'll get a free children's book and other resources.

STORYTELLING- A STEP ON THE ROAD TO LITERACY
A family workshop

Storytelling is a fun, intimate, and rewarding way to share your family's history. It's also an important skill for a young child as they take important steps toward independent reading. You'll learn how to recognize and nurture the stages children go through in developing their storytelling skills, and eventually their reading skills. Fun activities you can do with your children enhance this interactive workshop.

USING TELEVISION TO TEACH
For teachers, any level

Learn about how television affects our children and how to turn it into the most powerful teaching tool at your disposal. Learn new methodologies for appropriate use of television in the classroom. Using short segments of video interactively and integrated into lesson plans has been shown to increase student learning and retention up to 400%. Put the power of video to work for your students!
