Jones and Klarenbeek’s presentation, “Reading with a HEAP of Books,” discussed the importance of content collaboration to use time efficiently while teaching. According to Jones, the presentation “heightened the awareness of national health education standards by integrating them as themes in literature.” The research for the presentation was collected from literature circles consisting of practicing teachers, pre-service teachers, and elementary education students.
