ESEA/NCLB Conference 2016

I attended and presented at this year’s Illinois ESEA/NCLB conference.  As always I walked away with some new strategies to try and some new resources to delve into.  I was excited to present this year on one of my favorite topics, conferring during writing workshop.

You might say I’m obsessed with charts.  I used a few at the conference.
