One cool new resource I recently found was the Convention Planner on NCTE's Web site: http://www.ncte.org/annual. I was able to search the program and make a (giant) list of all the events that would be the best for me! It's only a few weekends away!
This year, my Professional Practice Goal is to work on Student Led Discussion. I know I need to get better with discussion practices, procedures, rubrics, and protocols this year, so that's my aim!
If anyone can help me, let me know! I am looking for
- books on quality and quantity of participation
- discussion strategies
- lesson plans
- participation rubrics and self-assessments
- systems you use to promote, track, and assess participation
- anything else that will help me!
As always, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a question or resource for me.
