Welcome to our website! We hope that you will find time to read and comment here. Right now, we are working on a new book for Stenhouse Publishers. It's about making reading-writing connections using mentor poetry. We are having great fun trying out new Your Turn Lessons in our classrooms and experimenting with familiar formats in new ways. Students are amazing us with their acrostic poetry, now that they have several strategies to create them. Poetry is a wonderful way to write across the day in various content areas. We'll keep you posted on how the new book is coming along.
