Podcast On Your Plan episode 15 with Drew Price

Drew PriceDrew and I were drawn together by our interest in teaching whole-novels versus excerpts. In this episode, we review some feedback on the issue from the #ELAOK Facebook community (which can be found by CLICKING HERE) and research on reading (which is also available in the link).

I was most impressed with Drew’s practical strategies for teaching reading. (After recording this episode, I want to kidnap a classroom and try teaching with literature circles!) I hope you enjoy! Don’t forget about the show links and notes at the bottom of the page.
