What was “Between” the Principles?

The Humor.

The Stories.

Real conversations with Students.

A genuine person.

So many rich quotes:

  “The hardest thing about teaching is understanding that a teacher’s world is not a student’s world.”

“When kids see themselves reflected in texts they think, ‘I am here’.”

“Kids who choose what they read double their understanding in their reading.”

“We read what matters in spite of complexities.”

“Read a novel once a year.  Use it to build community.”

We have decisions to make and we have to begin with our principles or non-negotiables before we can begin to make decisions about

“What to lose?  What to keep?  What to adapt?”

We need to deeply understand the interconnected relationships between our students, their families, their communities and their literacy lives.  We must be respectful of their time at school and leverage the high-return actions that grow literate adults who read, write, speak, listen and think successfully in the world.

Laughter, learning, fun, talk.

Maybe we need to take ourselves just a little less seriously!

Thank you, David Booth, for those important reminders!  

“What will you lose?  What will you keep?  What will you adapt?”
