    Join RALC for a virtual book club discussion! Free for RALC and NYSRA Members!

    Equipped for Reading Success by Dr. David Kilpatrick is a comprehensive, step-by-step program for developing phonemic awareness and fluent word recognition.  We will discuss the research and strategies to promote phonemic awareness for kindergarten through fifth grade students using the resource available in the book. While the book is geared towards K-5, struggling readers in middle and high school may demonstrate gaps in this area as well. The strategies and program take only a 5-10 minutes a day but provide great results!

    This is a book for parents and teachers who want to learn how to assist with the foundational phonemic awareness base for early reading. The first part explains what needs to be done. The second part provides the “how to do it”. The third part provides needed Training Exercises that are easy to use (One-minute activities). Finally, the last part provides Appendices and Resources.

    Dr. Kilpatrick will be our featured guest speaker April 2022.

    Hosts: Linda GilletteSmith & Amy DeBlase

    An Evening with Penny Kittle

    Writing with Passion: reimagining the teaching of writing

    We must lead students to deepen their understanding of the flexibility and power of writing across genres to prepare them for university and civic life. We will study the moves writers make to enter a conversation in a text and have their say. This workshop will focus on the teacher's model of thinking & demonstration in writing as a most powerful teaching tool, the importance of practice writing in notebooks to hold first thinking alongside the daily practice in revision, the power of writing communities, and the decisions all writers must learn to make in writing. 

    PLEASE NOTE: If you registered for NYSRA Conference 2021, you are already registered to attend this BONUS SESSION. There is no need to register again.

    Those who were unavailable to join us for Conference 2021 Re-envisioning a Brave New World, here's another chance to engage with Penny Kittle.

    #100 DAYS OF NOTEBOOKING & BEYOND BY MICHELLE HASELTINE


    Join Michele Haseltine on Wednesday, January 19th virtually on Zoom at 4:00. In this session, Michelle will share how writing in a notebook serves individual wellbeing and connection. As lifelong notebooker and creator of #100daysofnotebooking, a Facebook group devoted to spending the first 100 days of the new year writing in their notebook, Michelle has brought this practice to hundreds of teachers and created a safe space for notebookers to share their pages, find inspiration, tell their stories, and connect with others who share the joy of keeping a notebook. She will discuss how joining a community of notebookers motivates us to make this practice a daily habit. So grab your notebook and be ready to experience the benefits of notebooking.

    Michele Haseltine is the founder of the #100DaysofNotebooking challenge and is currently writing in her 85th notebook. Aside from notebooking for herself, Michele enjoys teaching her students how to notebook and wants to help you do the same in a forthcoming book from Teach Write Press. You can find Michelle co-hosting the #TeachWrite chat on the first Monday of every month, on Twitter, and on her blog.
