Nutshell #1: Fostering Lifelong Readers
I'm so excited to announce my summer blogging series called "Teaching Tips in a Nutshell". During the summer I love to read and study ways I can improve my performance in the classroom. This series is intended to pass this learning on to you in a brief recap, or a "nutshell"! So, here we go!
Recently, Donalyn Miller, author of The Book Whisperer, was a keynote speaker at the Teachers College at Columbia University, Reading & Writing Project. She spoke about the importance, the research, and the ways teachers can help students become lifelong readers. It is an interesting article titled "Donalyn Miller Teaches Important Lessons about Fostering Lifelong Readers". The following are Ms. Miller's tips "in a nutshell"!
Each of the Teaching Tips will be available in my TPT store for FREE. The file will grow with each tip I blog about.
I hope you enjoy this series!
