Reading Today, the journal of the International Reading Association, recently came out with an article announcing that I was named the Grand Prize Winner of the 2007 International Reading Association Presidential Award For Reading and Technology.
Thanks to all of you who have sent me congratulations.
Reading Today is not available online, and many of you have asked me how they can read what they wrote about our program. I haven’t received my copy in the mail yet (I guess the West Coast gets it later than people in the East), so I’m not sure exactly what the article says.
However, I’ve just posted on my website what they told me they thought they were going to write. I’ll make any corrections once I’ve seen the actual issue.
Great Big CONGRATULATIONS to you Larry! I learn so much from you. You certainly deserved this award.
Thanks! And, I, too, learn from you. I hope people reading this also check-out Karen’s Teaching Every Student blog (http://teachingeverystudent.blogspot.com/).
Congratulations, Larry. Nice article and truly amazing achievements. It takes a lot of work to accomplish things that are positive and actually work. I hope the program continues to build and grow. I know the students will continue to benefit even after they move on to other phases in life. We just can’t do enough when it comes to education. You’ve put together a useful and solid program that concentrates on the right stuff. I’ll blog about it soon.
