It has been a complete joy to release this two-part episode with Donalyn Miller. Donalyn is one of my biggest inspirations as a teacher. She changed the way I teach my students, and she is one of the “real deals” in education. I hope you have enjoyed this opener of season 2 as much as I have making it.
In this episode, we dive even deeper in the weeds of an independent reading classroom, touching on conferencing, limiting reading selections, research supporting independent reading…and much…MUCH MORE (including one of the best rants I have ever heard in support of letting children read.)
I can’t stress enough how much you need to hear, and share, this episode.
Thank you for listening and supporting this podcast!
