This fall I will be a featured speaker at the Literacy For All Conference in Providence, Rhode Island. I’m looking forward to joining some amazing speakers for two days of exceptional professional development. Recently the Lesley Center asked me, as one of their presenters, to contribute to their literacy blog. The Lesley University Center for Reading Recovery and Literacy Collaborative is a leader in literacy education and I was honored to be asked. So that will be my blog post for this week.
Here’s a link to my post: MAKING THE INVISIBLE, VISIBLE!
You should check out Lesley’s blog and if you are looking for professional development next year-I highly recommend Literacy For All-check that out here:
What’s On My Book Radar
Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life
by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
Not only was Amy Krouse Rosenthal an extraordinary human being, she was a talented and creative writer. In this book she adapted moments from her life into an encyclopedia format. With her humorous and sometimes emotional perspective on those “ordinary” slices of life, AKR shows us that ordinary is what makes life so special. You don’t have to read this cover to cover-her entries are alphabetized and not necessarily chronological. This book could be a mentor text for writing, as well as living!
