About this Grantee
Ms. Binz and her partners form In-Depth Study Groups through half-day workshops to help students read independently, understand and discuss books, and become life-long readers. After attending the Reading and Writing Institute at the Teacher’s College at Columbia University, participants develop units of study for a reading workshop. Teachers use the latest resources to improve reading among students and to learn the best teaching practices. The in-depth study group shares its findings with Franklin School staff and attends local, regional, and national conferences.
