Slice of Life 22: Saturday

(During March, I am blogging daily as a part of the Slice of Life Story Challenge!)  Special thanks to the hosts of the Slice of Life Challenge:  StaceyTaraDanaBetsyAnna and Beth.   More Slice of Life posts can be found at  Two Writing Teachers .

It’s Saturday.  Today is also the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project Saturday Spring Reunion. (link to the brochure)

That means that today I will be following the #tcrwp Twitter Stream closely and keynotes are underway by rockstars Diane Ravitch, Colleen Cruz and Shanna Schwarz.

The Setting:  FREE workshops by fabulous #tcrwp Staff Developers

Who:  Teachers and Administrators spending their time on a Saturday to learn and to celebrate learning about literacy

Agenda (link to the day’s agenda)

Learning via twitter is truly the next best thing to being in NYC at Columbia University’s Teachers College. All of the presentations will help teachers and administrators deepen their understanding of student responses to literacy instruction!

Summarizing Results

Earlier this week, I used a Google Form to collect reader data about favorites in the Hunger Games book series and in the movies to date.  Here are the results.

  1. OH MY GOSH! I forgot about the reunion…Must go look. See you there.

    1. Between the reunion, NCAA wrestling and basketball, I have had fun today! Now I need to focus for just a bit!

  2. Someone, maybe Tara, wrote this morning that she was on her way to the TCRWP reunion. I neder

  3. Whoops, accidentally hit return too soon! I thought the reunion sounded interesting, but I never thought about watching it on Twitter. Great idea!

    1. Yes, Tara was there and many other #tcrwp folks. It looked and sounded like a lot of great learning! That, of course, was no surprise!

  4. Sad I didn’t get to see you in person today Fran. Next time!

    1. The program was awesome! So many choices!

      I’m not even close to being caught up after my 4 day trip last week to see the kids in KY. It would be fun to plan for next year!

      Still so nice to be able to follow along and be inspired by the twitter feed!

  5. I’m there in spirit, just like you! Oh, how I wish I could go back in time and buy that plane ticket when it wasn’t $600! Oh, well, next time, right? Just love the TCRWP and all of the friends I’ve met here during the SOLSC month!

    1. The combination of #TCRWP and SOLSC is unbeatable! Powerful and supportive community!
