  1. Hi, Ben. As always, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
    Quick question: what about the novels? Do you read them on Wednesday and Thursday, having practiced expressions from those sections on Monday and Tuesday, or do you just do all class-specific readings?

  2. Hi Kelly –
    Susan Gross says to plow through the novel for two weeks, doing nothing but that, no stories, etc. and then, for five weeks, do “standard storytelling” as I do in my new weekly format, where we read texts generated from the stories created in class.
    I like this two weeks of novels and five weeks of stories approach. We need to review with Susie what that entails. We need to contact her and ask her to present on reading at NTPRS, so we know exactly how to do those two weeks. I’m kind of rusty on what Susan says about reading.
    And what about the FVR? For awhile, I did my new weekly format as described herein but started each class with ten minutes of FVR while I called roll and all that.
    However, I stopped the FVR in a weird rush to get class going. I wanted to get right to the PQA on Monday, the story on Tuesday, and the reading on W/Th block.
    I need to get back to the FVR to start class. We have the variety of books, thanks to Diana. I think that the best is to start every class with FVR, whether it be in my new weekly format or in the two weeks of blitzing a story as per Susan.
    I feel that the kids need to be reading 60% of the time or more. The number keeps going up in my mind.
