This morning, I had the pleasure of speaking with local friends and teachers at the Niagara Frontier Reading Council’s Spring Brunch. Theresa Andrews invited me to chat about the importance of creating a culture of readers inside of our schools and how we might resolve some of the data dilemmas that seem to be preventing this. This two hour session was interactive, but I’ve captured the abbreviated version in this podcast.
This is my first attempt at creating a podcast, too. Please be kind. :)))
If the stories that I share about documentation inspire you, feel free to read more here:
- The quick guide to documentation, reflection, and analysis is free to download.
- This post can help you distinguish the assessment of learning from the assessment of its products.
- This is a very quick example of documentation at work inside of a local school.
- And my book, Make Writing, is my own learning story, drafted after I completed several documentation cycles of my own with resistant writers.
Please feel free to leave a comment here, to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, or to connect with me on Twitter if you’d like to talk more.
I’m excited to begin a new year of documentation work with a new team of teachers at the WNY Young Writers’ Studio this summer. I’ll be back soon to share more about our project.
