Since it is July—the month of fireworks and freedom celebrations—I thought it would be a good time to also celebrate FREADOM! You know….freedom to read…whatever you want. Summer and Freadom are special to me personally because (as you will remember if you read my previous post “A Word from a Rebellious Reader”) the summer of my sophomore year was the summer I fell in love with reading.

Recently, many of you attended our Summer Learning Series webinar on Motivation and Choice. In it, we discussed the value and importance of giving our students choice in what they read. If you missed it, don’t fret! All of the webinars in the series are archived on our Region 10 Online Learning Center. Just go to  http://olc.region10.org/catalog/Resources/English-Language-Arts. We have one more coming up on July 21st. We will be exploring how art and media can be used to strengthen literacy skills. Enjoy your summer and find something great (maybe even a banned book!) to read!!
