Interesting Professional Development

Today I was fortunate to experience a day of amazing professional development training at Wayne Count Community College District.  Sadly, many days of professional development are wasted days, but this was not the cased today.  The topic was the human brain and reading.  Dr. Maryanne Wolf, from Tufts University was the presenter.  It was so interesting to hear about the "science" of reading, something I rarely think about.

It was interesting to hear about different brains and how they respond to language and reading.  I really look forward to reading Dr. Wolf's book which was provided to everyone in attendance.  While I usually do not review academic reads for my "Read of the Month," I may have to make an exception for this title.  It may not be an exciting fiction novel, but the topic is very important to the success of students throughout the country.
