The Kewaunee School District is putting an emphasis on literacy and writing by giving their teachers some homework. The staff and students are doing work as part of the implementation of the Lucy Calkins’ Teachers College Reading and Writing Project. Kewaunee School Administrator Karen Treml says the commitment this summer by the staff is paying off in the classroom.
The new reading and writing project is designed to develop, pilot, revise and implement state-of-the-art curriculum in writing. Treml says the new strategies and techniques allow both Kewaunee teachers and students to become even more proficient in literacy and writing.
