This week's Take5 serves up a little of everything, kinda like the Thanksgiving Dinner you are all hopefully about to enjoy later this week. For a main course, we're offering up discussions starters to help reluctant learners explore why school matters and teacher strategies for improving student talk and student assessment. Looking for a side dish to accompany those strategies? Explore the history of Thanksgiving (the history teacher in me couldn't resist). And for dessert, a little time with one of our favorite Sesame Street Characters, Cookie Monster. So Take5 teacher friends and then enjoy your very well earned Thanksgiving break!
Last week I attended the Virginia Association for School Librarians (VAASL) Annual Conference. It's always hard to get away from school for a few days, but I think it's worth it if I am able to collect take-aways that really upgrade the work I do every day in my library program and my learning as a professional. And, as I am heading out this week to attend our big national conference, the American Association of School Librarians, I thought I'd pull together some of my tips for turning a good conference experience into a great one.
