On Thursday, November 16th, Irene C. Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell hosted the Twitter Chat: A Level is a Teacher's Tool, NOT a Child's Label. People from all over the country to join the conversation, sharing their own views, concerns, and queries about this very important subject. Some favorite tweets included:
