2015 Scholastic Reading Summits for Educators


Do you live near St. Louis, Charlotte, Phoenix, Cincinnati, Boston, Austin, or Birmingham? Are you looking to connect with local educators? Are you passionate about reading and writing? Do you love books written by Donalyn Miller, Cynthia Lord, Pam Munoz Ryan, Andrea Davis Pinkney, Lauren Tarshis, Penny Kittle, David Baldacci, and Kate Messner? If you answered YES to any of my questions, I hope you'll consider attending a Scholastic Reading Summit for Educators.



Librarian extraordinaire Jennifer LaGarde (aka Library Girl) and I developed a professional learning workshop for the summits. 

School Librarians: Champions of Change 

In a time when discussions about education are often dominated by standards, high-stakes testing, and budget cuts, our students (and teachers!) need a champion! Join John Schumacher (a.k.a. Mr. Schu) as he explores the value of school librarians as champions of change. Participants in this workshop should roll up their sleeves and get ready to dig into the role of librarians as champions of independent reading, connectors of the school family, and advocates for all students.
