Just finished ten weeks of writing 6-8th grade lessons that partner the ideas in Being the Change: Lessons & Strategies to Teach Social Comprehension (Ahmed, 2018) with those in my books Nurturing Informed Thinking and Close Reading of Informational Sources.
I learned a lot.
And I’m exhausted.
Stepping away for the summer but when I see you again, I promise to share some of what I learned & developed including the text sets I created 😉 If you’d like to see the lessons before then, touch base with me!
For my friends in the northern hemisphere, hope you’re taking a peaceful break this summer! And my friends down south, hope your teaching is going smoothly this fall/winter. Reach out if you need me!
Thank you to San Jose Unified for offering me this opportunity! And to Sara Ahmed for sparking my thinking!
