“To be a reader is to live the world in a thousand ways.” - Pernille Ripp

Reading is a call to action. When we immerse our students in engaging literature and invite them to ask thought-provoking questions, we allow them to lead their reading journey down an authentic path. What excites you when you are reading? Where do your questions about the world take you when you are reading? How does your thinking grow through reading experiences? Together, let’s discover, investigate, and celebrate these inquiries. 

Join us as we take a deep dive into reading through an inquiry lens. Together, we will:

  • Immerse in rich, diverse children’s literature
  • Intentionally explore the relationship between metacognition and comprehension
  • Discover how reading and writing inquiry work supports deep cross-curricular learning
  • Curate text sets and plan a reading inquiry to support an individual unit of study
  • Create a demonstration of learning to share at a culminating celebration!
