Hey here is an example of me doing a a "read" post https://quickthoughts.jgregorymcverry.com/2019/02/11/my-notes-from-chapter-one-of-digital-minimalism I like taking notes by hand. I am doing an online book club for and will model how people read together when not together

I would go as far as to say the lack of respect for oral traditions has little to do with truth and everything to do with racism.

Mr. Moore great post love flavor of your blog. and your ideas around oral language development would benefit any child. Especially around the concept of the home and school connections. Even little things like sending a few text messages (or blog posts even better)

Yes regardless about political opinions of the it is what we teach and taxpayers expect us to do., and while there are some progressions in Reading for Literature that make little sense it wasn't a source of controversy (besides people saying info text replaced lit)

Meagan I spend a lot of time coaching people on how to use the @CSDE evidence guides. Especially around intellectual risks. Your post is a great observation of the teacher. I could use it as a model in some trainings.

There is no writing correctly. Grammar, while improving writing, can also act as a tool for oppression

Yes, as long as the topics and routines change. I just don't want to see students still counting the days on the calendar 120 days into the school year.

What an important point! We should build in time during preschool for students to hear more adult to adult conversation.

I like the idea of a closing circle and starting the day with a book rather than morning meeting. It's not that I am against morning meeting I just want to protect every instructional minute.

Great quotes Lamesha from reading we must be intentional when developing vocabulary as part of oral language development. Better choosing fewer words, make them content driven and provide repeated exposures and connections across multiple modes
