A Year of Reading: Read Across America: Who Are You as a Reader?

A Year of Reading: Read Across America: Who Are You as a Reader? | Leaves | Scoop.it

Read Across America Week will be here before we know it. This is always a challenging week for me. I want to celebrate but I don't want the celebration to be about the week. I want us to celebrate literacy every day all year. And I want whatever we do during Read Across America Week to be authentic. I also want it to fit into our bigger goals for our school reading community.

Matters of Consequence

Matters of Consequence | Leaves | Scoop.it

If you were to say to the grown-ups: “I saw a beautiful house made of rosy brick, with a geranium in the windows and doves on the roof,” they would not be able to get any idea of that house at all." 

 

This blog so beautifully illustrates our battle as teachers and simply explores the dichotomy we face each day using one of the most effective weapons known to mankind, the power of story.
