#cyberPD 2017 - Dynamic Teaching for Deeper Reading - Week 2

It's week 2 of the #cyberPD reading of Dynamic Teaching for Deeper Reading by Vicki Vinton.  I once again challenged myself to sketchnote my thoughts and ideas from chapters 5 and 6 and was amazed at how much time I spent synthesizing and re-reading.  I do judge I was "diving deeper for meaning" in the process.  I am not certain if the sketching is slowing me down or the deep thinking that sketching requires is more time consuming.  Regardless I am doing extra heavy thinking about this book - more so than I have in a long time. Skimming a professional book is fine sometimes, but I am enjoying this deep read.  More importantly I am relishing this community of thought-provoking individuals.  Thank you #cyberPD!

  1. I want to try all those ideas, too. The know/wonder chart is something I've done before (after I read What Readers Really Do) and it works well. Less modeling is something I need to remember. I like the idea of letting students do the work first and then noticing and naming what they do. Thanks for sharing your sketchnotes!
