This pretty cool thing happened.
Abydos friends - please share the call for manuscripts for the fall/winter 2019 English in Texas journal. The theme is perfect for summer institute participants - teachers as readers and writers. Call can be located at www.tctela.org. Or message me if you want me to send it to you directly!
Be sure to follow us on Twitter! We'll be doing some fantastic giveaways at the conference next week for our Twitter followers. The official hashtag is #AbydosCon18. Tweet about the amazing things you are learning throughout the conference, fun picks of you with colleagues and conference friends!
This looks great! I wish I could attend, but I live in Albuquerque now. Do you have any scholarships for the over 60 group?

In 2007, NJWPT became Abydos Learning! Abydos: Named after the ancient city in Egypt whose history begins in the late prehistoric age. The city was used from the first dynasty to the 30th dynasty. The ancients believed the city "opened the way" to all who entered. In more modern times the city allowed contemporary scholars to unlock the secrets of the ancients when they found the Table of Abydos, which has been called the "Rosetta Stone" of the beginnings of civilization. This Table is the only place where the entire list of dynasties from the 1st to the 30th is carved in stone in one location. It serves as a history to civilization's beginning and a guide to who we have become.

We'd love to hear from you ...

Are you safe? Are you and yours healthy?
Will you be returning to school? How are you preparing...? We miss everyone!

Are any of you as sad as I am knowing we won’t be together this week at the conference? I absolutely refuse to delete it from my calendar. Tonight about 30 of us were able to zoom with Dr. JAC, talk about her latest blog (http://www.abydoslearning.org/director-s-blog/our-very-own-hinge-moment), and share what we are experiencing during this time in education. We ARE planning on having more virtual interactions, so we will let you know when that is happening next. Until then, please share on this page the literacy moments that you are witnessing and all of the amazing, authentic ways you are connecting with your students in the Abydos way. We love and miss you all. Stay safe, and take care!!

Day three of the institute was filled with lots of fun as educators from Ector County ISD learned about Dialogue as Prewriting, Looping, and the Showing grouping strategy.

First two days of the institute with Ector County ISD (Odessa)educators was a huge success.
