After a 3-hour "special" (just our "rebellious" grade level) training with a Reading Street specialist (with administration nodding and enthusiastically taking copious notes), I am in a state of complete depression. I would love to have you start a separate thread for subversive ideas/strategies, ways to cope, etc. with scripted reading programs. (If there was an opening, I'd transfer to the Middle School! That's a big step from 2nd grade!)
I have enjoyed your fun lesson ideas in Why We Must Run With Scissors for years. (There are Post-its sticking from almost every page!) Your persuasive writing activities are my students' favorite because of the laughter they create. Thank you for helping to enhance my work with high school English students through engaging lesson ideas!
I look forward to being an active member of the Discover Writing community.
It is my lucky day. I look forward to learning from each other and sharing great ideas. Great videos. I can't seem to find anything on conclusions. We are doing better with leads but struggle with conclusions. Help!
Won't be long and I'll have the entire Discover Writing library. I already have 6 of the ones listed in the "Books" section. I reeeeaally want Carol Out of the Box. I am glad you have encouraged her to start a kinesthetic learning group right here on the Ning. Thank you again for all you do.
