Invigorating Meeting

Today I met with our Literacy Team to plan our upcoming professional development and walked away even more excited about our venture into Reader's Workshop. Based on the work of Laura Robb, MEHMS teachers will go through ongoing professional development to prepare teachers to take on the task of implementation. Over the summer, teachers have read Teaching Reading in Middle School and Bringing Words to Life. Two wonderful books about strategic reading curriculum and robust vocabulary instruction. I am looking forward to Ms. Piscopo taking over as the Word Wizard. It is going to be a great year at MEH!
