Weekend Ed. Quote ~ December 2

“If the true learning objective is to ignite a student’s passion for literature and provide an opportunity to demonstrate understanding through a variety of modalities, then maybe it’s time to move beyond the book report.” ~ Beth Holland, Projects to Engage Middle School Readers

This quote, like last weekend’s quote, was suggested by one of the teachers in the PBS course I facilitate. Thank you, K.L.!

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ November 25

Extremely thankful for teachers, this weekend! This weekend’s quote shared by a teacher in the online course I facilitate (Thank you, E.M.!)

“The literacy-rich environment also provides students with opportunities to engage with and see adults interact with print allowing students to build their skills in understanding the conventions, purposes, and functions of print. “Children learn how to attend to language and apply this knowledge to literacy situations by interacting with others who model language functions” (Gunn, Simmons, & Kameenui, 1995, 11).
