Post for the week of February 18, 2013
Happy February break! Read a book for fun! Here's my most recent read. This hefty book of informational text is wonderfully crafted and relevant to education.
There are a lot of literacy events coming up soon:
The MRA (Massachusetts Reading Association) Annual Conference is April 4 and 5 in Quincy.
The annual NEATE (New England Association of Teachers of English) event will not be held this year as the group prepares for NCTE in Boston on November 21-24, 2013.
Just two weeks from now is the RIWP (Rhode Island Writing Project) conference in Providence, RI.
If you're interested in travelling this summer, here are events for English teachers at the Smithsonian and all over the country through the National Endowment for the Humanities.
And, here, just for fun, is an article from the New York Times about teaching literacy and vocabulary in physical education curricula.
