Welcome to Mrs. Anderson's Literacy!
I teach Read 180 5 BD and Workshop 4AC in addition to being the literacy teacher leader for our amazing team of literacy teachers here at East. I am originally from Colorado but moved to Rochester two years ago. My passion for literacy came from my teaching experience in Los Angeles at an alternative high school. I have a three-year-old son and another baby boy on the way.
What can I do at home to help my scholar?
“There is no more important homework than reading. Research shows that the highest achieving students are those who devote leisure time to reading, even when the school day and year are only mid-length and homework isn’t excessive. Recently, the largest-ever international study of reading found that the single most important predictor of academic success is the amount of time children spend reading books, more important even than economic or social status. And one of the few predictors of high achievement in math and science is the amount of time children devote to pleasure reading.”― Nancie Atwell, The Reading Zone: How to Help Kids Become Skilled, Passionate, Habitual, Critical Readers
