WAB Reads: WAB Reads Book Clubs

Homepage for the WAB Lab Professional Learning Resources

Thanks for signing up for WAB Reads 2019!

These resources are to support you and your group through the WAB Reads 2019 season. 

They are suggestions and you can choose to use them as much or as little as you wish.

On your book's page there is a Padlet that is unique to your group - you can use it for sharing ideas, linking to resources or making notes. You can also share your learning on Twitter using the hashtag #WABReads

Enjoy WAB Reads 2019!
