Patricia Vitale-Reilly, author of Engaging Every Learner, wants to push back against the decreasing amount of choice she sees in classrooms today. Utilizing the lenses of content, process, and product, as defined by author and differentiation expert Carol Tomlinson, Patricia shares that choice in process allows students to find what really works for them in a given context.
Patty is in the midst of a leading a 3-part webinar series along with Lisa Eickholdt called Writing Workshop Essentials: Environment, Structures and Lessons. Join us in session!
