National Board Candidate Support Training
Alabama Reading Conference
Here are some thoughts from a few of the teachers who attended:
"My favorite session, by far was Mr. Schu's session. He reminded me how important the library is & not to take it for granted when promoting a love for reading." - Susan, Arab Elementary
"One technology integration idea I discovered was Katie Garner's "backdoor" route to accelerated Phonics skills mastery website... I thought that the App 53 was interesting too. It is a modern writing tool for writing, drawing, and note-taking. This would be a wonderful addition to teachers' iPads." - Taryn, Harvest Elementary
"...Another technology integration is allowing students to use WeVideo to highlight material learned. The Engaging Reluctant Readers session showed how one teacher asked students ot create a group video highlighting material learned from their assigned genre." - Wendy, Harvest Elementary
"During the session, "Engaging Reluctant Readers," the presenters shared the idea of book themed STEM activities for students. Teachers at my school are already familiar & using STEM boxes, but giving them a book theme would be a great way for teachers to encourage reading." - Cortney, Arab City
"From the conference, overall I am taking back to my classroom the importance of text sets, reading alound to students, and encouraging students to read books that interest them..."
- Brittany, Goldsmith-Schiffman Elementary
"My favorite session was "Reading Essentials' by Stephanie Harvey... She shared an activity which allowed the students to demonstrate and share their thinking while listening to a story...I absolutely love learning and being exposed to experts in the field of reading." - Dione, Huntsville City
