I will be attending the Teachers College Summer Reading Institute this week. While this will be my ninth summer institute, it’s only going to be my third time attending their Reading Institute. Since I’m a NY State certified literacy specialist, which encompasses reading and writing, I decided it was time to pay more attention to the reading side of things. (As you may have noticed, I’ve spent a lot of time nurturing writing-related professional development in the past five years!) My session placements are:
- Addressing the Pandora’s Box of Main Idea Instruction: Scaffolds, Small Group Work, and Curriculum Can Help Students Infer and Interpret Nonfiction Texts
- Tap the Power of Technology and Media to Teach Higher Level Comprehension
I usually bump into and meet-up with other bloggers while I’m at the Writing Institute. Therefore, I wanted to know if anyone out there is attending this week’s Reading Institute. If you are, please leave a comment. Hopefully we can get a group of slicers or bloggers together for coffee one morning.
