Changing Results 4 Young Readers

Today I am attending the first of a two day conference in Richmond: Changing Results for Young Readers. This is the second year of the provincial project which asks primary teachers to develop an inquiry project to improve the chances for reading success, for one child they teach. The theory is that by managing an intervention with one child the teacher gains knowledge, experience and confidence which benefits the whole class. Action research, inquiry, personal learning all means more learning for educators. We have heard from project director, provincial Superintendent of Reading, Maureen Dockendorf, data research director, Sharon Jeroski, reading advocate Faye Brownlie, and others. It's all about reading.
