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.
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.
