Heading back to Teachers College Reading and Writing Project for the 16th annual Reading Institute.
Keynote Speakers include:
Katherine Bomer, David Booth, Lucy Calkins, Kathy Collins, Nikki Giovanni, and Maurice Sykes
The brochure states:
“Upper grade participants will be divided into sections that reflect both grade level
and the participant’s background with the Project. All upper grade teachers attend-
ing their first Teachers College reading institute will attend a large group section led
by Lucy Calkins and a small, grade/experience-specific section that will cover such
topics as: comprehension strategies, read aloud and accountable talk, small group
work, writing about reading, book clubs, and methods of teaching. “
Should be a fabulous learning opportunity! I’m trying to reread most of The Art of Teaching Reading before leaving.
