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 focuses on writing workshop. I've been working with K-6 teachers and students since 2009. Prior to that, I was a fourth and fifth-grade teacher in New York City and Rhode Island.

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).

I live in Central Pennsylvania with my husband and children. In my free time, I enjoy swimming, doing Pilates, cooking, baking, making ice cream, and reading novels.
