This Friday at Folk U.... a very special session "Professional Development for the Rest of Us: What to do when reading, writing, or math aren't fun?"

Do you or anyone know know, parent, teach, or work with sometimes feel that learning just isn't that fun? Is it a learning disability/difference or is it the way you've been learning?

Sue Hall, author of Fish Don't Climb Trees, will do a talk and hands-on workshop on how to reframe and teach so that our learning differences can become our gifts.

1 to 2:30 Talk
3 to 4:30 Workshop

Free.. At Linnaea Sunshine Room.
