It won't be long before the third annual Reading for Research Month challenge registration opens on February 15. We are working hard to complete our list of inspirational author-educators and will soon reveal our all-star calendar. March will be a busy beneficial time of year for you!
What we can tell you now is this:
You will learn from editors, agents, authors, illustrators, librarians, and educators. You will receive mentor text feedback from 24 different viewpoints and up to 125 mentor text recommendations! You won't be disappointed with your new found knowledge!
Picture book writers, as well as students and teachers, will benefit from challenge participation.
In case you missed some of the mini challenge topics in 2016, we have conveniently listed them for you here. Feel free to take advantage of this research before we usher in a new year of mentor text perspectives and research:
April Challenge: Endings
May Challenge: Comparing Texts
June Challenge: Conflict
August Challenge: Emotion
September Challenge: Favorite Books
October Challenge: CYBILS Books
November Challenge: Feeding your Soul
And of course, you can experience what you missed of the 1st and 2nd annual ReFoReMo challenges, as well: 2015 and 2016.
Yes! Looking forward to researching in 2017!!ReplyDelete
This was a wonderful boost and encouragement of my reading as-many-picture-books-as-possible habit. Note to self to do something nice for the overworked library staff who so helpfully sourced so many mentor texts before 15 February! Happy New Year of reading/research!ReplyDelete
