March 13, 2006

CET PTA Parent Education present a special reading workshop for parents called “Seven Keys to Comprehension” on each of the following Tuesday mornings, March 14, 28, April 4, 18, 25, 2006 from 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM at the Carrie E. Tompkins Elementary School (CET).

In a second of a series of reading and writing workshops with CET Principal Diana Bowers and special guest instructors from the CET staff. In the workshops, participants will learn to read and understand text the “CET way”—the same way the kids are taught.

The workshop will run like a book group: parents will read and discuss a novel of their choice, using techniques outlined in the new book “7 Keys to Comprehension-How to Help our Kids Read it and Get it!” by Susan Zimmerman and Chryse Hutchins. Zimmerman is the author of “Mosaic of Thought”.

Please RSVP as soon as possible so that there are enough copies of the book available for participants. The books are available at the workshop for $10.00. Please contact Lisa McManus by phone at 914-827-8212 or by sending an email to LisaMac AT

The CET PTA hopes that the community will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.
