Mosaic of Thought and Coffee

January 6, 2006

The CET PTA is thrilled to announce the January “Coffee with the Principal” featuring Ellin Oliver Keene, co-author of Mosaic of Thought. The “coffee” is being held on Tuesday, January 10, 2006 from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM at Carrie E. Tompkins Elementary School.

How do students become thoughtful, independent readers who comprehend text at a deep level?

To find the answers, Mosaic of Thought authors Keene and Zimmerman embarked on a journey into the thought process of proficient readers - a journey through poems and essays, classrooms and workshops, humor and reflection.

Mosaic of Thought chronicles that journey, which ultimately led the authors to elaborate on eight cognitive processes identified in comprehension research and used by successful readers. These serve as models for the strategies offered in this book - strategies intended to help children become more flexible, adaptive, independent and engaged readers.

IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to ensure adequate space for all interested in this meeting, please RSVP to Eileen Clark (827-9530) or Mary Ann Gmoser (271-4799).
