If you're like me, your summer calendar is filling up quickly. If you're local, you might be interested in attending the Back-to-School PD I do for Nixa. They charge a fee for this (unless you're a Nixa employee), but it's not that much. If I remember correctly, it's not more than $50 a day.
I'm planning to present a day on Writer's Workshop for 2nd-6th grade and maybe a day on Brain or Differentiated Instruction or ???. They're still working on the details. Registration is not open yet, but I thought I'd extend an invitation in case you're interested. I'll post a comment to this when I know more.
I'm planning to have lots of lessons ready-to-go for the Writer's Workshop session.
