UCPS Teachers attend Reading and Writing Project in NYC
Laura Bahmanyar, Patricia Medina, Nick Brooks, Debra Reed, Sherry Richardson, Kristi Williford and Wendy Helms participated in the Reading and Writing Project hosted at Teachers College Columbia University in New York. Workshops were offered covering grade levels kindergarten through eighth grade. Throughout the week long experience, participants were treated to lectures by Lucy Calkins and other educators involved in the project. We were actively involved in learning about and using the methods employed during Readers and Writers Workshop. Presentations were done in large groups, featuring keynote speakers and engaging activities were offered in small group sessions. Breakout sessions concentrated on special areas of interest. Everyone attending learned a great deal and is excited about sharing their experiences.
