DALLAS, Sept. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Voyager, a member of Cambium Learning Group serving the needs of at-risk and special student populations through strategic and intensive comprehensive interventions, opened registration for its complimentary Back to School with LANGUAGE!® webinar today. The one-hour webinar will take place on Thursday, October 6, 2011, at 3:00 p.m. Central Time, and feature Laureen Beyer, San Bernardino County literacy coach and veteran LANGUAGE! teacher.

LANGUAGE! is an intensive mastery-based language arts intervention that targets the needs of non-readers, struggling students, and English language learners to accelerate them to grade-level proficiency. Beyer has taught the program for nine years and watched it evolve from edition two to four.

"I have seen LANGUAGE! grow and I've grown with it—first as a teacher, then as a coach, and now as a trainer," reflects Beyer.

No matter what type of experience an educator has with LANGUAGE!, this complimentary webinar will provide valuable information to start the year off smoothly. With something for the novice to the veteran, the session offers exclusive access to a top-notch LANGUAGE! educator. Attendees will learn key strategies for classroom management, review methods for setting up a successful LANGUAGE! classroom and discuss the components of the LANGUAGE! observation checklist to fully understand what implementing the program with fidelity means.

About the Presenter

Laureen Beyer has taught for nearly three decades (every single grade, without exception, from preschool, elementary, middle, secondary and adult education, including special education and English language development). She currently teaches grades seven and eight at Cobalt Middle School in Victor Valley High School District in California and also serves as a literacy coach, district trainer and district literacy support teacher. Laureen has taught LANGUAGE! for nine years. Watching her LANGUAGE! students—many of whom come to her with academic and behavioral issues—flourish and grow as readers is very rewarding and she is eager to share her experience with colleagues to help make a difference at other schools.
