Join educators from all over the state in an online book club! Choose one or two books!
Read, reflect on, and respond to A Novel Approach by Kate Roberts and/or Writers ARE Readers by Lester L. Laminack and Reba M. Wadsworth. These seven-week online discussions, beginning June 24, will help you see the power of whole class novels to build a community in your classroom and/or how a reader’s insights can be turned around to provide insights into their own writing. Participants who complete all assignments will be eligible to receive 15 PD clock hours for each book club. Participants who participate in one book club during the summer will have the opportunity to participate in the other one during the fall session, which will be offered in October after the 2018 IRC Conference.
