A Day with Penny Kittle

I attended a workshop today that was lead by Penny Kittle.   Penny is the author of Book Love and other titles that focus on 6-12 Reading and Writing.  

There were a number of take-aways from today’s presentation.  Perhaps the most important take away was the description of the three types of Reader’s Conferences. 

They are:

1.  About a Reading Life

2.  Teaching Reading Strategies

3.  Driving students to increased complexity and challenge.

This conversation fits in well with last week’s newsletter from the 2 Sisters which focused on conferring in the literacy block. 

Special thanks to Penny for an amazing presentation and day of learning.
