"Reading literature within a classroom community is powerful because we cross the boundaries of time and space, we read the words and live in the worlds of people long centuries ago, of people in faraway lands or in castes not touching our own. By reading, we can walk city streets and stand in fields of wheat, we can live inside skin that is black, brown, or white, we can see through ancient eyes or through the eyes of a child. We can read of people utterly different from ourselves and find kinship with them." - Lucy Calkins

At Region 17, we strive to learn and present the latest Reading research. With No Child Left Behind, we have to meet the needs of all learners and know how to meet the challenging needs of struggling learners.

We are dedicated to providing teachers with applicable professional development and assistance that supports student success.
