This year I am mainly teaching the core subject of reading.  Until I became a teacher, I had no concept of how strategic it is.  One of my favorite sayings is:  There is no teaching without learning; and no learning without teaching.  I do not know who originally made this statement, but I certainly understand it at this point in my career.

It is my goal to research and put the following reading strategies to work in my classroom:

  • K-W-L Charts
  • Graphic Organizers such as Summary Writing Frames
  • Vocabulary Instruction
  • Writing to Learn (Quick Writes)
  • Structured Notetaking
