I am busy reading all of the District Eleven Battle of The Books selections and many professional development books and blogs. I continue to listen to podcasts about adolescents, education, and/or technology. In a couple of days I will begin a 6-week online course about Instructional Design. Finally, I am especially focused on two books our Language Arts department is going to study this year:
- With Rigor for All - Meeting Common Core Standards for Reading Literatureby Carol Jago and
- What’s the Big Idea - Question Driven Units by Jim Burke.
What did you learn so far this summer?
