Many of you may have attended Reading Is Thinking in the past. This enhanced version of RIT focuses, as always, on comprehension theory and practice, as well as collaboration, inquiry based learning, content literacy and thoughtful technology integration. An educator for over forty years, Steph has been a classroom teacher, a special ed teacher, a literacy coach, and now works as a staff developer, literacy consultant and author. Insatiably curious about student thinking, Steph is a teacher, first and foremost, and continues to work in schools on a regular basis, savoring any time spent with kids.
Come and learn more about comprehension, collaboration, inquiry based learning , content literacy and technology integration. This year, Steph is delighted to have four amazing educators presenting sessions at RIT 2.0. Sara Holbrook, Michael Salinger, Katie Muhtaris, and Kristin Ziemke will share ways to thoughtfully enhance reading and writing instruction with technology.
