While I found EVERY minute of the conference engaging, I especially enjoyed learning the Narrative Theme Writing strategy with Jean Schumaker. I found the strategy easy to follow and seems easy to implement as well. I will most likely use this strategy with middle school students in my current teaching position. I also would like to train the others on my team to be able to implement this strategy. It was a privilege to be introduced to this strategy by a SIM icon, Jean Schumaker.
