How does writing in dialogue reading journals affect students’ reading comprehension, specifically integration of knowledge and ideas, and their overall motivation to read and write?
Of all the options in the thesaurus for the word leader, guide and harbinger are the ones that I connect with the most. The impression of control and power that I feel from the other words listed there, like ruler, supervisor, and boss, are the furthest notions from my mind when I think of leadership. Service, support, and collaboration are what come to mind when I reflect on the leaders I most admire. I am eternally grateful for these thoughtful guides that crossed my path and nurtured these same values in me. Each of these individuals lovingly supported, appreciated, and challenged me.
