Today I had the honor to present with my friend Cathy Mere at the Dublin Literacy Conference just around the corner. We talked about Emerging Nonfiction Readers and Writers. There is a lot of talk about nonfiction with the Common Core. Our hope was to help shed light on the Common Core standards and share examples from our room where students are engaged with nonfiction learning. If you joined us, thank you for coming we were glad you spent time with us.
