Synchronicity with RealWritingTeachers

So, I’m gushing about the RealWritingTeachers group on Yahoo at our meeting of the West Tennessee Writing Project.  I get home and there’s an e-mail from one of the moderators and it turns out she’s a TC from the Little Rock Writing Project.  They too had a meeting Saturday and were discussing the booklist for their Summer Institute.  Here’s their list of potential books:

The 9 Right of Every Writer: A Guide for Teachers by Vicki Spandel
What a Writer Needs by Ralph Fletcher
Wondrous Words: Writers and Writing in the Elementary Classroom by Katie Wood Ray
Best Practices in WRiting Instruction Edited by Steve Graham, et. al
Inside Writing and My Quick WRites for Inside Writing by Donald Graves et. al
Designing Professional Development in Literacy by Catherine Rosemary, et. al
Portfolio Teaching by Nedra Reynolds et. al
Because Writing Matters, NWP & Carol Nagan
A Writer’s Book of Days by Judy Reeves
The Artful Edit by Susan Bell
The Poetry Home Repair Manual: Practical Advice for Beginning Poets by Ted Kooser
That’s just great!  They all sound terrific and I haven’t read any of them.  Oh well, gotta go track them down and read them!
