The Literacy Connection is happy to host Chris Lehman as our 2015-2016 speaker. As we do every year, we'll host a yearlong study around a professional book. This year, the book will be Falling in Love With Close Reading. The year will kick off on Saturday, October 3 (in Dublin, Ohio) with a full day session with Chris. There will be 2 after school sessions offered for those wishing to participate in the yearlong study. Then we will end our year on Saturday, March 12 for another day with Chris Lehman.
I love these events because they start great conversations with colleagues and friends. I wasn't able to hear Chris speak at the Dublin Literacy Conference but everyone who heard him said that his work in close reading is great for all grades K-12.
So, save the date--you can pick and choose the days you want to attend, or like many teachers--attend all 4 for this yearlong study.
More info to come but as you are thinking about your own learning for the 2015-2016 school year, this might be one you want to add to your calendar!
