This VES Professional Study Group is based on the recommendations described in Becoming a Literacy Leader, Supporting Learning and Change by Jennifer Allen to provide teachers with the opportunity to reflect, review and integrate new thinking into their classroom instruction. We use professional resources as springboards for discussion and personal examination. Most of what I have written here comes form Jennifer Allen’s wonderful book.
This year we have 10 teachers participating. We are Third Grade, Fourth Grade, Fifth Grade and Special education Teachers. This is our fourth year for the book group and our first year using the blog.
