I help ELA teachers make changes in their teaching practices that yield big results. Educators from around the world have not only learned the importance of connecting reading and writing, but also how it benefits their instruction and their students' learning. You'll learn how to make "it all fit" into your literacy block while also improving your students writing and thinking. Join me as we discuss literacy, authentic learning, and developing critical thinkers and writers.
