Grandpa Bommarito is Taking the Week Off
This week was an exciting week. There was a new addition to the Bommarito clan. Mom, Dad and the kids are doing fine. Grandpa Bommarito is taking the week off to enjoy his new grandson and help out where he can. However Grandpa Bommarito (aka Dr. Bommarito) will have a very special treat for his readers next week. Let me tell you about that.
Glenda Nugent and I are the co-editors of the Missouri Reader. Missouri Reader is a professional reading journal. It has been publishing for 41 years. It comes out twice a year. It is peer-edited journal, and our editorial board has quite a number of university professors and other well credentialed folks. We welcome articles around literacy topics. We especially love articles about projects carried out by classroom teachers with the help of the university professors. We have a number of regular features. Submissions/requirements details are always explained on the last page of each edition. The next issue will include some very special content. Glenda and I just interviewed Jennifer Serravallo about her newly released book Understanding Texts & Readers. The book is an incredibly valuable resource for anyone wanting to really teach comprehension. In the course of the interview Jennifer talks about both the content of the book and how to make good use of that content. The good news is the interview will be included in the next issue of the Missouri Reader. The even better news is that highlights from that interview will be given in next weeks blog. So stay tuned, exciting things to come next week!
To hold you over in the meantime, here is a link to a Missouri Reader article I did a while back about Jennifer Serravallo’s book Reading Strategies . Her newest book is designed to be coordinated with her other two strategy books, so looking this over would be a good way to get ready to hear all about her new book. The link is https://joom.ag/q9OQ. The article is on pg. 42. Enjoy!
Until next week, Happy Reading and Writing
Dr. Sam Bommarito (aka Grandpa Bommarito)
