Guess what I did last Friday?
I met Lucy Calkins!
She came up to do a workshop on the Common Core...
...and it was AMAZING!
She sat next to me and shook my hand-I felt like a fangirl! :)
There was a ton of great information-I took four pages of notes.
She was a great speaker-inspirational, funny and full of wonderful information.
We even got some goodies!
A copy of her Pathways to Common Core book, with an accompanying CD that has a load of great videos, and the people who hosted it gave us a cute totebag-another one to add to my collection!
She has a great website with The Teacher's College (The Reading and Writing Project) that has videos galore. There are even some free Performance Assessments for each grade!
If you ever get a chance to see her-go!
Now, if only we could convince our district to get her Units of Study...
