We are about 10 days away from our next LCN gathering and I wanted to remind you about the chapters for our conversation. We had agreed to read Chapter 12, “Closing the Gaps for the Hardest to Reach” and Chapter 14, “Reducing the Incidence of Early Reading Difficulties: Professional Development for Classroom Teachers Versus Direst Interventions for Children”.
Believe it or not, the chapters do shadow each other in theme. I have been thinking about the first chapter especially, almost non stop since I read it. It was rather mind blowing for me. Especially when it is layered over our learnings last year from Peter Johnston and Doug Fisher’s Gradual Release of Responsibility Instructional Framework. So I would like to switch up our discussion format just a bit and combine both articles for our conversation cafe when we meet. I will give just a quick overview of the main points and then start the conversation with an essential question.
Happy Reading and I look forward to our time together on February 26th!!
