Leveled Reading Summit in Florida

A career highlight last week when asked to address the superintendents and other decision makers at the Scholastic Book Summit in Tampa, Florida.  I spoke about the traits, and the show went over BIG time.  Annette Seago, Assistant Superintendent in Blue Springs, MO, shared data on their writing program and its phenomenal success–thanks to these great traits.

It was my first time to speak to people about Traits Complete, our new writing program coming out in August.  Very exciting from beginning to end.
