See you in Indy, Chicago, Milwaukee or online!

I’m looking forward to upcoming events in February.  There’s nothing more fun than getting to see friends and meet new faces across the country.

Registration is open now for each of these. Hope to see you in person (or typy-typing online)!

If you cannot make these, check the link at the bottom of this post for additional events (I’m talking to you OH, MO, TX, IN, PA…).

 

Indianapolis and Chicago

February 4 and 5. Kate Roberts and I will lead a day long workshop on close reading practices for grades 4-12.  There will be tons of practical ideas for close reading fiction, nonfiction, texts and media. And potentially we can get Kate to sing (but don’t tell her I told all of you that).

Registration is open now at this link to Heinemann PD.

Tweets and Slides from WRSA “Write to the Core: #EnergizeResearch”

Yesterday was an awesome day with the Wisconsin State Reading Association who hosted my 1-day Institute “Write to the Core: Energize Research Reading and Writing” in Wausau, WI, based on my book Energize Research Reading and Writing.

A large group of dedicated educators filled the room to capacity despite the heat wave(!) and talked, tweeted, wrote, shared, and considered ways of re-imagining research instruction to support engagement,  learning, and student independence.

Thanks everyone for all you do for learners–adult and child alike!
