Welcome to the Heinemann PD Professional Learning Community Series. This month we look closely at creating opportunities for ourselves and our students to consider the power of the reading-writing connection.
The Big Book of Details author Roz Linder shared a video blog about engaging students in a skill in the real world first—then modeling it to promote transfer to the writing on the page. Click the image to view the blog!
In her Heinemann Digital Library article, literacy consultant and author Leah Mermelstein described the role of write-aloud and how this is different from shared or interactive writing. Follow the PDF thumbnail to find the post and download the article.
In this post, we sampled Regie Routman's new single session On-Demand Course. The clip shows Regie modeling scaffolded conversations to help emerging writers express their ideas. Click the image to view and learn about her course!
We have a new Facebook group created to support all of the "unstoppable" writing teachers out there! Join us in the group and get ready for a summer book study, based on The Unstoppable Writing Teacher: Real Strategies for the Real Classroom, hosted by Heinemann Professional Development.
