Author Ellin Keene At Woodlake Elementary
Teachers and students enjoyed a rare treat learning from acclaimed author and education expert Ellin Keene. Keene conducts workshops all over the world focusing on a unique strategy of reading comprehension and writing. She mesmerized Rebecca Morris' 3rd grade class by demonstrating some of the techniques she has discovered over the years in teaching students how to reading more efficiently and at a deeper level of understanding. The demonstration was followed by a question/answer/and observation session for teachers. Keene co-authored the book "Mosaic of Thought," (2007) with Susan Zimmermann. She was brought to the school district for limited school demonstrations by Judson ISD Reading Specialist Angela Jolivette.
