Welcome to the book study group for Laura Robb's text "Teaching Middle School Writers". My name is Laurie Henry, and I'm an Assistant Professor of Early Adolescent Literacy at the University of Kentucky and Vice President of the Kentucky Reading Association. I will be your facilitator for this book study group, and I look forward to meeting you all. We will begin our book discussion group on August 20th. So, you have only a few short weeks to purchase your Laura Robb text and get ready for a great experience.
