I am leading a group of teachers in transforming their reading teaching by using the strategies that the work of Zimmerman and Keene (amongst others) advocates in Mosaic of Thought. Do you do similar…Continue

It's exciting to see this Ning grow with educators from all across the United States. I work at an educational service unit in Nebraska. My colleague and I provide professional development for 11 school districts in our area. Currently, seven of our districts are involved in the beginning stages of implementing Response to Intervention in their elementary schools. I would love to know how and if you are involved in Response to Intervention.

I taught middle school reading for several years and currently provide training on literacy across the curriculum in many schools. I totally believe reading is the bedrock of all other learning and try to get teachers to see the benefit of using reading strategies to increase student learning in content classes. I look forward to the conversations to come.

First, let me admit that I am a little technology challenged. However, thanks to Twitter, I have learned so much these past few weeks.

Why am I here? I have a master's degree in teaching reading and love talking about reading with anyone who will listen. I have many TWRCs (thoughts, wonderings, reflections, & connections) and aim to refine my knowledge. I am a member of my local, state, and international reading associations. I am serving as the President Elect of my local council this year. I love attending IRA's annual conventions and think I will be attending the World Congress of Reading for the first time this year. It's in New Zealand!

Anyway, while I was researching the locations of the conventions, I came accross www.tripadvisor.com and became an instant fan of their forums because I learned so much. I thought to myself, there should be a forum like this for teaching reading. I've been looking for them for about a year now, and cannot seem to find them. This led me to think I should create my own which I am trying to do at www.TWRCtank.com. Thanks to @mom2preteens, I have also discovered the englishcompanion ning. I was surprised at the number of groups there and cannot wait to explore the site further.

Sorry for the long post, but I am just so excited that 3 people joined a group called "All About Teaching Reading." I do hope this will become an active Personal Learning Network. I look forward to sharing and learning with you.
