Conference deadlines are tricky! Yikes!! I had planned to submit a proposal to the Michigan Reading Association about presenting once again on Reader's Workshop, but this time focusing on "using materials you have."
Unfortunately, my memory failed me as I was thinking the proposal was due by Sept. 30. I was off by several weeks and I should have submitted my proposal in early September.
So...a moment of sadness ensued...
Then I realized that I have others to consider! I've decided to look into the American Montessori Society and write a proposal regarding reading workshop in a Montessori classroom. After all, this is what I do every day. I teach in a Montessori classroom. I use the reading workshop method.
Whatever happens, I will continue to research and refine my study and use of the Reading Workshop method.
