Teach BIG was developed by classroom teacher, Randi Whitney, to meet the needs of her students. Teach BIG assists teachers with BIG ideas and lessons in both reading (Tap & Think Reading) and writing (The Writing Academy). The basis of The Writing Academy and Tap and Think Reading is one that is founded on many years of brain research. These concepts are implemented through the use of colors, small chunking, games, and graphic organizers.
Teach BIG is dedicated to building relationships as the cornerstone to creating a learning atmosphere that will last a lifetime. Assessments are a reality, but when they are viewed as a place where students can show off what they have learned, it becomes something they look forward to, and students move from surviving to thriving. Reading WRITE inspires students one teacher at a time by incorporating interACTIVE experiences and weaving together the inseparable content of Reading and Writing!
