One thought on “Global Literacy Communities: Teacher Book Clubs and Global Explorations”
I have only just begun to explore your work on this webpage but am so interested in delving deeper and applying some of this work in my own practice. The text sets, materials, and activities you have posted are very informative and helpful. You have done a lot of research and leg work that many classroom teachers are not able to do AND provided a guide for those of us who would like to engage in this type process.
Your packet on Burma is especially interesting to me as I work with a large population of Burmese refugees.
Thank you for sharing your work.
I am interested to know how your reading specialists fit into this exploration?
Thank you again,
