As many typically make New Year’s Resolutions, NHCA faculty were challenged during a professional development session to transform learning in their classrooms in 2014 by becoming avid readers. Adam Baker, Director of Middle Childhood Education and Assistant Professor of Education at Harding University, led faculty and administration in re-thinking literacy. As a former classroom teacher and literacy coach, Baker provided the entire faculty with research-based theory and practical classroom application for grade-level teams. Reading to students and engaging them in reading through rich conversation and book recommendations creates a school-wide culture of reading that produces life-long learners. That’s our resolution for 2014. What’s yours?
