New Choice Literacy Podcast: Chris Lehman on Student Research

My new Choice Literacy podcast with educator, author, and friend Franki Sibberson is live!

In it, Franki and I discuss saving the teaching of research and informational reading/writing from the boredom inducing 8-week long card-catalog projects of our own youth to teaching in ways that support student learning, energy, and interest. The podcast draws on thinking from my book Energize Research Reading and Writing (sample chapters here).  And is also the subject of my upcoming October 3-part webinar series with Heinemann PD (more on that and registration in yesterday’s post).

New Choice Literacy Podcast: Chris Lehman and Kate Roberts on #CloseReading

A big thanks to Choice Literacy and educator, author, and friend Franki Sibberson for inviting us to record an interview for their “Choice Literacy Podcasts” series.

Kate and I talk about our learning while researching and writing our upcoming book, Falling in Love with Close Reading: Lessons for Analyzing Texts–and Life.  

We didn’t know when the podcast would go live, so Kate and I just finished a flurry of “HEY LOOK!” texts back and forth to each other.  We’re happy to share this with our blog-a-thon community and welcome your insights, reflections, and revisions to our current ideas.
