Third and fourth grade teachers in the Core Task implementation Project (CTiP) worked on a grade 4 close reading exemplar matched to Lou Gehrig’s “Farwell Speech.” Cathy Schmidt (Scoop.it! page here) edited the piece and you can find a draft of the work here. If you have any feedback, please share. Teachers are currently piloting the piece and we’ll be posting a final version in the next few weeks. (And if you can get rid of the pesky extra page, please tell us how!)
Educators who worked on the draft included: Jennifer Burmer, Erin Dawson, Naomi Frazier, Sarah Roggensack, Megan Tilton, Mickey Cutler, Sara Davis, Megan Delossantos, Kitty Gillette, Revae Henry, Katrena Kalleres, Clarisse Mayer, Angie Reeder, Troy Reinhardt, and Kate Ferro.
