My favorite students to work with are the Toughest Readers to Please. They perplex and intrigue me, and I learn so much about teaching and reading from working with them. On Twitter, check out #TRtP for tweets about what we learn together and for book ideas to please the toughest of middle school readers.


Technology is changing how we read and how we teach reading. I use the #page2screen to reflect on how technology impacts us as readers.
