Read Aloud at Cornwell Avenue
This week Jenn Corrado collaborated with Brooke Martins, who offered to teach an interactive read-aloud at Cornwell. Ms. Corrado is always happy to welcome other teachers into her class and believes that learning from colleagues is important. It’s also a way for students to experience literature and content differently from the way she teaches it.
Brooke was outstanding as she led the class in a flawless interactive read-aloud. It is a pleasure to have colleagues share their strengths.
