Day 100, Swine Flu, etc.

Tomorrow marks the 100th Day of President Obama’s Administration. Today also marks the day that our school stepped up our prevention of the Swine Flu. (Click here for an acrostic poem I wrote about hand washing and how it relates to the prevention of disease.) And those are just two of the many important stories that are currently in the news. Want some strategies for how to make current events come alive in your reading or writing classroom? Click here to learn more about some new books from Kelly Gallagher and Sarah Cooper who’ve recently tackled the teaching of current events. They’ve hosted a VoiceThread Conversation about some of the work they’ve done. Do participate… there are some neat (potential) prizes if you join the conversation.

I am a literacy consultant who has spent over a decade working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grade K-6, I'm a former fourth and fifth-grade teacher so I have a passion for working with upper elementary students.

I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).
