Dyad Reading: Improving Reading Outcomes in 15 Minutes a Day
Dyad reading is a cooperative peer-assisted reading strategy; a strong reader and a struggling reader sit side by side and read aloud from a challenging text in unison for 15 minutes each day. With over 50 years of research, the Dyad reading method has been shown to promote literacy skills by incorporating sight and sound multi-sensory experience. We will briefly highlight the evidence for this strategy and its average impact of 2-3 years of reading growth on student outcomes in one year. Additionally, this session will train participants on how to implement Dyad reading with in their schools. Participants will walk away from this session with the tools needed to immediately implement this strategy.

Club Crafting: Youth-Driven Afterschool Programming
Do you struggle with low youth engagement and teacher staff burnout? In this session, we will explore solutions to these problems with youth led club crafting. At the beginning of each year, Walden's afterschool program holds a Club Crafting Day where youth are encouraged to find other youth with similar hobbies and interests, to band together to find a teacher-mentor, and to design a club. Come to this session and we'll show you step-by-step what our Club Crafting Day looks like and how you can personalize it for your program.
