    • Teachers Reading- Writing-Reflecting Together Jane U. -- librarian Converse Middle School Palmer, MA
    • REWIRE OUR TEACHING writing reflecting reading
    • Inquiry Questions
      • Can participation in a teachers book group—in which we read, write and reflect together—have an impact on student achievement?
      • How will our teaching change after being involved with such a group?
    • Researchers tell us
      • “ A dynamic view of professional development allows for varied approaches for information exchanges and constructing knowledge about learning and teaching.”
      • from: Professional Development: Extending Literacy Roots , ERIC document 427 290
      • “ In recent years, teachers of reading and language arts have been encouraged to engage their students in social constructivist literacy practices such as literature circles, book clubs and collaborative learning, yet teachers had had little opportunities to experience and enjoy socially constructed learning themselves.”
      • From Janet Hill’s doctoral dissertation-in-progress, Kent State University, 2001
    • The Solution?
      • participate in teacher-driven professional development
      • focus our work on reading specifically chosen books and meeting regularly throughout the school year
      • explore together ways to connect our thinking with the texts through discussions, writing and reflecting
    • Possible Titles for 2006-07 How we view ourselves as teachers How we view our students How students view us How do we change as teachers?
