Notes from the Road

It's been a hectic month. I gave the keynote speech at the Missouri Conference on the Young Child in Osage Beach followed rapidly by a speech at the Michigan Reading Association in Grand Rapids. After a brief respite in Wisconsin with some relatives, I went to Warsaw, Indiana where I spent a week working with the kids and one afternoon with the teachers and librarians.

Being with Dorothy Watson in Missouri was one of the highpoints of the trip. No one understands constructivist education better than she does and her enthusiasm is catching. If you haven't read any of her books, or if it's been a while since you have, try Making a Difference: Selected Writings of Dorothy Watson (Heinemann, 1996 ISBN 0 435 08873 4. Hardcover ordering info. Paperback ordering info.).

This month I'll be doing an in-service workshop in Enfield, Connecticut on the 21st, working in Greenfield, Massachusetts with the fifth and sixth graders at Greenfield Center School on play writing on April 28th and then heading down to Atlanta to the International Reading Association for the first week in May. Stop by and see me at the Teaching K-8 Magazine booth if you get a chance.

May 17th, 1997 I'll be in Syracuse, NY for the Cayuga Onondaga BOCES. June 27th, 1997 I'll begin teaching the week long course in Children's Literature at the Lisbon branch of Sacred Heart University in Connecticutt. July 21st I'll be keynoting at the Shenendoah Children's Literature Festival in Winchester, Virginia.
