  • On Thursday, November 19th, all New York City public schools will be closed temporarily.

    The Mayor and the Chancellor have announced that starting tomorrow, Thursday, November 19th, all New York City public schools will be closed temporarily.

    We are sad to close our doors and will miss seeing our blended students in the building. The Chancellor has indicated that closure is temporary and that we will reopen when it is safe to do so; we hope that day comes quickly. As of now, the criteria for reopening has not been shared with us. We will keep you informed of updates as we receive them. 

    See the Chancellor's Letter to Families.

    Leveling Up in Reading: What Higher-Level Comprehension Looks and Sounds Like

    • While reading levels are a useful assessment tool for teachers, they provide a mere snapshot of a reader’s intellectual potential. 

    • This hour-long workshop with Hareem Atif Khan will outline practical strategies to support your child in developing deeper engagement and thoughtfulness while reading both fiction and nonfiction.

    • Hareem will talk through research-based best practices in reading instruction, arming you with ideas to support higher-level thinking. 

    • Hareem will also talk through the role that conversation and writing plays in reading, setting you up with important tips to help your child articulate ideas about the complex themes found in literature—and indeed, in our world.

    Hareem Khan teaches in the Literacy Specialist program at Teachers College. She also develops staff in schools in New York City and worldwide. She has helped develop the TCRWP Units of Study for Reading and Writing for many years. Hareem holds an Ed.M from Teachers College and an M.Sc in International Relations from Quaid-E-Azam University and is a Fulbright scholar.
