- Modeling by becoming a part of the reading/writing community is as powerful as ever.
Online educator Rebecca Alber in this blog post encourages teachers to write and read alongside their students as a way to show them that adults -- even teachers -- also need to clarify, revise or start over with a new topic. "When we model for students our love -- and struggles -- as readers and writers, they will follow. The more our students fall in love with writing and reading, the more of it they will do," she writes. Edutopia.org/Rebecca Alber's blog (2/6)
