Here we are with another chance to share wonderful books with each other thanks to Jen and Kellee over at Teach Mentor Texts and Sheila over at Book Journey who both sponsor this great meme each week for young adult/children and adult respectively!
This is what I read for the past 2 weeks since I didn’t join in last Monday:
And I read a Harcourt leveled reader book about ecosystems.
And I finished Notice and Note- Close Reading by Kylene Beers and Bob Probst. Another teacher and I are hosting a twitter book chat about this book on June 6, 13, 20 at 8pm CST. Hashtag is #NNNchat. Join us beginning this Thursday!! You can read a tiny description of the book here at Goodreads. We will be discussing Part 1 this Thursday:
Role of fiction,rigor, intellectual communities, close reading, text dependent questions, text complexity, creating lifelong learners
Kylene Beers has even said she will try to join us for the chat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You can follow me on twitter at @shannonclark7.
We have also created a facebook group to be able to continue the conversation as long as we need to. Find our group HERE.
Are you participating in any book studies or book chats this summer?
