Come See Us At NCTE!

We’ll be at the NCTE convention next week.  I’m already sifting through the amazing offerings trying to figure out which sessions to attend.  On Sunday we’ll be presenting with some colleagues on Inquiry Circles in the classroom.  Stop by and say hello if you can!

Room: Chicago Hilton/Joliet Room, Third Floor Topic: 21st-Century Literacy

Title: INQUIRY CIRCLES: COMBINING COMPREHENSION, COLLABORATION, AND INQUIRY

Inquiry circles support students to draw upon an expanded range of comprehension strategies and collaborative social skills to enhance understanding, acquire knowledge, and take action.
