Jack Gantos is the keynote speaker for the October Saturday Reunion. He is the 2012 Newbery Medal winner for his novel, Dead End in Norvelt. He is known nationally for his creative writing, spanning from picture books to middle school fiction. His works include the award-winning memoir Hole in My Life, as well as the Rotten Ralph and Joey Pigza series.
This is a day when literacy educators from across the globe come together to learn. It is a fast-paced day, brimming with workshops that can help you find horizons to work towards, whether your focus is on higher level comprehension, content area literacy, units of study in writing, assessment-based instruction, increasing student engagement, or bringing books to life. In one short day you can stand on the shoulders of the profession. Workshops will be led by Lucy Calkins, all senior leaders and staff developers at the Project, and many others.
The day begins at 9:00 a.m. at Riverside Church, one block west of Teachers College, and continues throughout the entire College.
The day is free of charge, without registration. It is a gift offered to the TCRWP community.
Looking forward… Mark your calendars for March 3, 2018 when we’ll have Daniel Beaty as one of our keynote speakers!
