Write Beside Them: Reading Schedule

Write Beside ThemI created a tentative reading schedule for parties interested in reading Penny Kittle’s Write Beside Them at the Learners4Life wiki.  It’s not too late to join us if you are interested in participating.

I received my copy of the book today, and it looks really good.  I am feeling kind of tired, so I don’t think I’ll get started on it until tomorrow or Friday, but I’m really excited to get going.  It looks like this summer might be as good as last summer for professional development.  Speaking of last summer’s professional development, I would still love to have more folks, particularly active folks (no offense to lurkers, but it’s been kind of quiet over there) at the UbD Educators wiki.

  1. i am currently taking a class here in iowa called the iowa writing project (iwp). i picked up kittle's book there to go through and have read quite a bit of it already. i have also viewed the dvd that accompanies it. so far, the book has been a great resource. i have a few concerns as to how i might implement this into my classroom. kittle has 83 min. blocks. i teach at a high school with 45 min. classes. also, we are more literature based at this point, and have a great deal of "required" novels. i like the idea of the book talk and having my students choose what they read, but i'm not sure how to do this??

    any ideas or how is the reading going for others?
