What Was Your Summer Professional Development Reading Ladder

Our Summer PD Reading Ladder
What we read
What we were thinking that led us to pick up the next text
Opening Minds by Peter Johnson
"Let’s get our students thinking well together! “
Comprehension through Conversation by Maria Nichols
“Perhaps being skilled at facilitating conversation will be a thread to implement the Common Core with fidelity.”
Pathways to the Common Core  by Lucy Calkins, Mary Ehrenworth, and Christopher Lehman
“That’s right—writing and reading go hand in hand—back to inspiration for our Writers’ Workshop.”
In Pictures and In Words by Katie Wood Ray
 "The language we studied in Opening Minds will help us nurture intentional work across the day."
