We just completed two great days (June 26 & 27) with Chris Biffle in Jackson, MO. Of course it was fast paced. Of course it was fun. Of course there were new strategies to share. Of course we went home exhausted. It wouldn’t have been a WBT conference presented by Coach B if it had gone any other way. The teacher’s that I have talked to following that conference are all excited about implementing WBT in their classrooms with the start of the 2012-2013 school year. I, too, am excited to try several of the new strategies Coach B shared with us. In particular, I want to add the “speed” reading into the steps for reading comprehension and fluency.
I’ll let everyone know how it goes when school starts. Until then, check out the WBT calendar on the WBT website (wholebrainteaching.com), and look for upcoming conferences this summer in your area. It is well worth your time. It will change the way you teach!!
