Happy 2019 to Everyone!

Glenbard High School District 87 Will be hosting a full-day PD on “helping students (and teachers) write for authentic audiences” on Jan 24th. The day will feature Katherine Schulten, editor of the New York Times Learning Network & Dr. Cristina Romeo Compton from the Student Press Initiative at Columbia University. We are meeting at the Glendale Heights Sports Hub, 250 Civic Center in Glendale Heights from 8am-3pm. Breakfast and lunch are included. WE ONLY HAVE 15 SEATS AVAILABLE FOR OUT-OF-DISTRICT PARTICIPANTS VIA EVENTBRITE, SO PLEASE REGISTER SOON! We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, January 24th!

KATHERINE SCHULTEN has been editor-in-chief of The New York Times Learning Network since 2006. The Learning Network is a free site about teaching and learning with Times content. In 2013, it won the WAN-IFRA World Young Reader Prize for Enduring Excellence.

Because it is the only thing like it in any newsroom in the U.S. (most newspaper-in-education initiatives sit on the business side) her team has been able to invent their own formula and features, from daily student writing prompts to a Times photojournalism activity called "What's Going on in This Picture?" to a lesson series called "Text to Text" that matches Times articles and essays with often-taught literary, historical, and scientific content. Under Katherine's leadership the Learning Network experiments constantly, and has seen their audience grow year after year.

During Katherine's 25+ years in education - as an editor or as an English teacher, writer, staff developer, literacy consultant or school newspaper advisor – her focus has always been on finding creative ways to build literacy communities.

See these incredible articles on writing for authentic audiences Katherine published in The Times.

DR. CRISTINA ROMEO COMPTON received her doctorate in education from Teachers College, Columbia University in 2016, with a concentration in the teaching of English. She began her career in education as a NYC Teaching Fellow, teaching in a Title 1 school, while completing her Masters in Childhood Education. Cristina serves as Director of Program Development for CPET. In this role, she designs and executes promotional campaigns aimed at recruiting, sustaining and growing CPET partnerships, coordinates and manages a wide range of projects, as well as hires and trains new coaches. She performs extensive needs based assessments of schools to help determine areas of strength and opportunities for growth in efforts of developing highly customized and targeted professional development plans. Additionally, she provides on-site coaching to schools in areas such as curriculum design and unit planning, establishing cycles of inquiry, aligning instruction to the Danielson framework and the CCLS, project-based learning and developing literacy strategies that can bolster student achievement across the disciplines. Cristina also leads the Student Press Initiative (SPI), an initiative that supports teachers and students in developing projects that culminate in professionally designed, print-based publications.

THE STUDENT PRESS INITIATIVE was founded in 2002, The Student Press Initiative (SPI) is part of Teachers College’s Center for the Professional Education of Teachers (CPET). Part professional development, part-artist collaboration and part non-for-profit publisher, SPI’s mission is to revolutionize education by advancing teacher leadership in reading and writing instruction. We work in partnership with teachers and school communities to guide the planning and production of all-inclusive learning experiences that culminate with students “going public” with their learning. Drawing on a wealth of research, resources, and talent from Teachers College, our consultants help teachers build and facilitate units that provide opportunities to address audiences outside of the classroom and link content-area reading and writing skill development with the excitement of real-world learning. Through publication, we raise the bar for what, how, and why students write!
