Opportunity at a Glance: Join us for a study with Kelly Gallagher, known for his books looking at what we know about best practices in reading and writing instruction — high volume reading, modeling strategies, student choice and fostering deep analysis. The day will conclude with a reading and discussion with YA book author, Steve Sheinkin.
