2016 Scholastic Reading Summits

Do you live near St. Louis, San Jose, Leesburg, Charlotte, San Antonio, or Cincinnati? Are you looking to connect with local educators? Are you passionate about reading and writing? Do you love books written by  Kwame Alexander, Jewell Parker Rhodes, Sara Pennypacker, Andrea Davis Pinkney, Matt de la Peña, Kate Messner, Donalyn Miller, Nancie Atwell, Pam Allyn, and Ernest Morrell?  If you answered YES to any of my questions, I hope you'll consider attending a Scholastic Reading Summit for Educators.




I am facilitating three workshops at every summit. 


1. Breakfast with Mr. Schu 


2. 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! Dig into the role of librarians as champions of independent reading, connectors of the school family, and advocates for all students.

3. Ambassador Schu’s Review of Books for You
and Your Readers, Too!

Calling all elementary school teachers, librarians, and administrators! Join in a conversation with Mr. Schu as he presents some of the best new picture books, early readers, and chapter books for emergent, transitional, and fluent readers. In typical Mr. Schu fashion, he will share book trailers, websites, activities, and interviews you can easily incorporate into lessons and booktalks to get everyone on your campus hurrying to your bookshelves to find the perfect book.
