The picture on this page was photographed at the 2008 NCTE Conference in San Antonio. I wanted to attend this workshop because I saw that Harvey “Smokey” Daniels (a.k.a.”The Literature Circles Guy”) was facilitating. It seems as if everyone else had the same idea I did. I got there “early,” and I still had to sit way in the back of the room!
I hope that I was able to capture some aspect of what I learned that day and share it with my Smithtown colleagues!
The PowerPoint from today’s workshop can be downloaded by clicking here.
The assignment handout I used to pilot this project with my 10th graders can be downloaded from this site as well.
Please feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions about this project or if you’d like some help to modify it for your own needs.
