I need to build a library of professional texts related to best practices in literacy instruction to create learning communities with my colleagues, so they can grow their students as readers and writers.
The students in our Wisconsin elementary school represent the ever-changing world in which we live. No two are the same, especially in their experiences, skills, and strategies related to learning to read and write. Our classrooms are inclusive of English language learners and students with special needs and represent varying socioeconomic statuses. Although they have their differences, one thing remains the same, they all want to have an engaging and enriching school experience.
The goal for our students is to become better readers and writers today than they were yesterday.
I firmly believe that learning can be so much more engaging when done in the company of others. I am asking for donations to purchase several titles of professional books to be used with my colleagues in a book club setting. Teachers will select the specific text that captures their interest and meet regularly for thoughtful discussions. If funded, our deep and reflective conversations around these shared texts will build our own proficiency in teaching effectively.
As we grow and learn, the biggest impact will be on the students that we teach.
They will will become stronger readers and writers as we put into practice the techniques we learn from these resources. I have chosen text that will stretch our thinking and allow us to address the challenges of teaching the students of today for the world of tomorrow.
