It’s book study MadNesS here in my little neck of the woods!
Today is Session 5 of Notice and Note, and I’ve gotta say… this book so far is a lot like reading a college text. It has put me to sleep a few times. Good stuff, but a bit on the dry side. The NEXT section that starts THURSDAY is where the rubber hits the road. Practical approaches to teaching close reading, which I am VERY excited for! So on to today…
How do I judge the complexity of a text?
And in case you want to hop on the book study train… two more GREAT books studies are starting soon.
Look for my first post tomorrow for the book The Literacy Teacher’s Playbook. I am super excited about this one. I think it will be a good refresher and offer some great tips for teaching and assessing to my little friends.
AND don’t forget, Guided Math Conferences will start next week. It is all about giving effective feedback in math. SUPER EXCITED!!! I read Laney Sammons Building Mathematical Comprehension book last summer and loved it.
