My bold goal for 2018 is to post (almost) daily with a focus on topics related to the specialized knowledge that teachers need in order to teach children to read and write skillfully. This is knowledge that is different than just being a good reader or writer. It is knowledge that teachers need to have in order to support their students as they develop these foundational skills. Have a topic you've been wondering about? Send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to hear from you!
