Dedicated to Teachers

Take The Heinemann Teacher Tour From Home!

20232849_10154703637846892_8382909063338438088_oOn Saturday, July 29th, Heinemann celebrated its fifth annual teacher tour.  Each year we invite teachers from all over to join us at our home office to learn from our authors, share in thinking and learning together, and tour the historic mill building that we call home. This year, we were pleased to host authors Ralph Fletcher, Grace Kelemanik, Valerie Bang-Jansen, Mark Lubkowitz, and Cornelius Minor. Each author led a forty minute PD workshop session for the tour participants. 

Were you unable to make it to this year's teacher tour? Fear not! We recorded each session LIVE for Facebook, and you can watch all of the videos below, along with the day's tweets and some presenter materials. 

We started out day with Ralph Fletcher, author of several Heinemann titles, most recently Joy Write: Cultivating High-Impact, Low Stakes Writing

*please note, we experienced some technical difficulty with this video, so this version starts about five minutes into the authors' presentation. 


To wrap our day up, we spent some time thinking with Cornelius Minor, a Teachers College Reading and Writing Project Staff Developer, a Units of Study coauthor, and author of a forthcoming Heinemann book.
