10/4 Guided Reading Meeting
The PTLC Guided Reading meeting yesterday was inspiring, fascinating and incredibly interesting. Joyce Kemmler, a long-time PTLC member, spoke about her experiences teaching emerging and struggling readers, traveling to New Zealand to learn about Reading Recovery and Guided Reading strategies, and common questions and problems teachers come across when teaching guided reading. Afterwards, Christina Puntel facilated a whole group discussion which was part question-and-answer and part idea/experience sharing. Finally attendees were able to peruse some of the book sets selected by Joyce and Betsy Wice which are PTLC favorites and available to borrow at TeacherSPACE. Big thanks to all who attended and helped to organize the meeting! Below are some pictures of the event, and the most recent changes to the space.
