@jthompedu I started reading time last semester. It’s been amazing! We transition from reading time to class time with an exercise I call beautiful sentences: everyone reads aloud a great line from their book! Works great with both classroom novels & independent reading. Great investment!!

Noticing a promising shift in mindset in many teachers and librarians these days. Folks who aren’t treating diverse books as some kind of checklist situation but an exciting opportunity for their school communities.

Q7:What are some ways to explicitly teach the vocabulary necessary to build or communicate disciplinary knowledge? #MichiganLiteracy #DisciplinaryLiteracy

A7: I LOVE this idea from @RebekahODell1 in Voices from the Middle: teaching vocab using field guides & inquiry! #DisciplinaryLiteracy

Yesterday after my session with a group of wonderful librarians in Kansas, a participant came up to ask me who I'd cited as the source of the "windows mirrors and sliding glass doors," metaphor often used to describe the awesome power of books. When I shared Dr. Rudine Sims...

Students of all ages, families and community members are welcome to celebrate the 2020 African American Read-In! Author Debbie Ann Taylor will perform a reading and signing of her recent book Over In Motown. The first 20 families will receive a free copy of the book. #ReadIn

Due to some disheartening comments in the #classroombookaday fb group about sharing pic books with trans characters & pushback on racism in anthropomorphic monkeys, I felt the need to clarify a few things about my stance on book selection. Sharing here for those not in the group.

Today ⁦@NYTmag⁩ published this haunting addition to the #1619project — a photo essay of slave auction sites, of places across the country where humans were bought and sold. Most of them are unmarked. It’s a forced forgetting that we hope to change.

Please use this additional resource in your classroom.
