I have seen a few Tweets about Nerd Camp but really didn’t know what it was before I researched it today. What got me intrigued was this video of Pernille Ripp’s (The founder of the Global Read Aloud) opening speech at this year’s Nerd Camp calling for teachers to be Reading Warriors.
So here is what you need to know about Nerd Camp:
- It is FREE! What? Yes, free!
- It takes place in the summer.
- It is in Michigan near Albion College (just a 9 hour drive from my house)
- It is for everyone who cares about reading and writing
