        Dira Cumberbatch published a blog post Week 1
        What I found very interesting about this week readings is that there is a literacy deficiency in students. Biancarosa makes a very interesting point when she states that in order for students to be successful learners, they must master complex texts...

            My experience as a reader was involved participating in the reading Olympics in school. I enjoyed reading a wide array of books and really wanted to showcase what I learned. Each year, we were given a list of books to read and our team would travel...

                I actually never really liked learning through literacy. In fact, I looked for as many opportunities to avoid reading as were presented. I only really read comic books and surprisingly encyclopedia (now Wikipedia). I didn't like to read...

                      What impressed me most about these articles is how lacking our Common Core literacy standards really are. There are a few contributing factors to this.   Biancarosa points out that there is not enough emphasis on literacy skill...

                          I growing up never use to like to read. I was an A student but really struggled when it came to my reading level all because I refused to read. I didn't have any issues reading, I just didn't want to do it. Then it came down to taking state...

                                  These articles discuss something that coming in as a new teacher was blatantly apparent to me. The overall discussion of the articles is that in place today there are programs, rules and strategies that are designed to get students on track with...

                                    I'll put everything for the bookmark assignment in this post as I think it all ties together for me. One of the most memorable things that happened to me when it came down to learning and literacy were words that were said to me at the beginning...

                                        This is my first year as a teacher and I agree with everything from the reading. I think the picture above describe the feeling of many public school students. I can not say that I am surprised on how much students are behind in reading. Literacy is...
