It has been a while since I have blogged. Family life has taken precedence. I’m still learning to juggle family, church, teaching, coaching, and writing. I have been writing though.
At the Michigan Reading Conference, I attended a workshop called Reading vs. the Wii. The gist of the conference was finding literature that spark boys to read. Having two boys myself, this idea has become a mission on mine. The presenter mentioned that we need to focus on books that have male characters. Now, when I’m looking at new books in the library or bookstore, I notice if the main character is a male. I will be featuring several throughout the summer.
Please remember to comment on postings that you find helpful. Feedback helps me become a better writer. Also, the books posted can be used in so many ways. I will only show a few possible teaching points. Fall in love with the text and the teaching will be simple.
