    Julie,
    At my school we have literacy study groups. There is one for K-2 and another for 3-5. Actually most of the schools in the district have them. There is a literacy leader for each one who facilitates the meetings. We pick an area we want to focus on and work on that. One year we read Strategies That Work and last year we did the guided reading section of Guiding Readers and Writers by Fountas and Pinnell. I'm not sure what we'll do this year. We meet once a month after school for 2 hours. Other schools had different schedules, but this worked best for us. Because it was a district wide program we were paid a stipend. Pariticipation was opitional, however at my school all but one of the 3-5 teachers joined. I have found it to be very valuable. If you can do it I say go for it. By the way Mosaic of Thought is a great book.
    Sorry this is so long. I hope this was helpful.
