Book Study

Teaching Writing by Lucy Calkins

Just a quick note about the Iowa Reading Association annual book study. We are offering our yearly book study online this year again! We hope this will be a chance for you to collaborate with teachers across the state! The book study is available for graduate credit and renewal credit. You can register at any time between October to April and take this class at a convenient time for you or your team to do together. The course will close on April 30th so we can grade your work and get you ready to meet the author of this book, Lucy Calkins, at our Iowa Reading Conference on June 17th-18th! She will do a keynote session and have lunch with a few of our book study participants on June 18th.
