Inquiring Minds Need YOU!

The Comprehension Clubs provide a convenient framework for a two week summer programming that engages students in reading, writing, and accountable talk. The passion for learning and inquisitive spirit will come from you! Be thinking of ways that you can extend learning by placing students' questions, ideas, and observations at the center of the learning experience.

The Reading Strategies Book ~ Jennifer Serravallo

No need to beg, borrow, or steal this book. There will be a copy of The Reading Strategies to use throughout summer programming. Unfortunately, these are only on-loan and will be returned to White River on June 19th. If you are not familiar with this little gem please take a moment to watch Jen Serravallo's brief overview.
