As we wrap up our Summer Blogstitute this week, we are happy to bring you an exclusive sneak peek of Cris Tovani’s new video, Talk to Me. In this 90-minute DVD, you can follow Cris as she confers with Irving and guides him to access and connect his background knowledge, or as she buckles down with Israel and helps him grow his vocabulary and develop a sense of text structure. Throughout fourteen conferences with individual students and five group conferences (ninety minutes of classroom footage), Cris differentiates her instruction to meet her adolescent readers’ and writers’ needs by listening to, learning about, and connecting with her students. Watch what happens when she sits next to a student, engages him or her eye-to-eye, and simply says, “Talk to me.”
This is your last week to comment on any Blogstitute post and be one of three winners to receive a package of five Stenhouse books of your choice. You can also purchase Cris’ new video — as well as videos and and books written by this year’s Blogstitute authors (Peter Johnston, Mark Overmeyer, Kimberly Hill Campbell, Kristi Lattimer, Jeff Anderson, Cris Tovani, Debbie Diller, Chris Confer, and Marco Ramirez) and receive a 20% discount and free shipping by using code BLOG by August 30.
