Making the move to Grade 7/8 LA and Social Studies for the 2017-2018 school year. Still love books and reading. Still love my wife and our dog Stanley. I believe choices in all things are important in education and that students need a voice in those decision. I like to know my students and what they like about reading more than I care about a level. If we are reading because we enjoy it we will become better at it. No one got better at anything if all they ever were told is you still are not good after all their effort. I am a follower of the teachings of Kylene Beers and Robert Probst and encourage everyone to check out Disrupting Thinking and Notice and Note both books by them. Thanks for popping in.
