MTS PD Day with Mr. Schu – October 19, 2018
John Schu believes every child deserves to attend a school filled with reading ambassadors. In this session, participants will discuss the importance of advocating for every child's reading life and walk away inspired to implement heart-growing literacy practices that will make the world better and brighter for their students and colleagues. In the afternoon, join in a conversation with Mr. Schu as he presents some of the best new books. In typical Mr. Schu fashion, he will share book trailers, websites, activities, and interviews you can easily incorporate into lessons and booktalks to get everyone on your campus hurrying to your bookshelves to find the perfect book.
See our MTS PD Day page for more details.
Meetings are open to all members. Please consider attending!
We welcome short book reviews, articles about teaching strategies, and other submissions. Please contact the Editor.
