The LWOW Cadre offers teachers an opportunity to learn about the wide variety of tools that are available to support reading (e.g., searching for appropriate books by reading levels, ebooks) and writing instruction (e.g., searching for and citing high quality sources) and projects (e.g., publishing ebooks) within the classroom. Participants can attend all or part of the cadres based on individual needs.
