Top Ten Quotes I have used from #NCTE14!

I can’t really believe that I’ve been back from #NCTE14 for two WHOLE weeks!  Wow!  Turkey Day and back to work with a vengeance.  What to do before the holidays hit?

I found some time to work on another view of my first time attendance at NCTE.   It involved a new use of Zoom.  Still in draft/learning mode, but I wanted to share what this could look like!

So what have I used? My Top 10 Quotes in the order of frequency of use! This video should give you an idea about the topics I have been working on / using during the last two weeks! (It was also in response to a challenge from @davestuartjr – another virtual and now face to face friend!)

 

What are you doing differently since #NCTE14?  

How are you sharing your learning?

  1. Perfect. Thanks Fran!

    1. Thanks, Julieanne! Trying to branch out! I am so used to the written word that I do need to try some other media for message. This does have me thinking, in advance, about end of year wrap ups! More fun to come!

  2. What a fun way of sharing what you have being using from the conference!

    1. Thanks, Steve! It was an interesting review of these past two weeks. Still holding onto how to best represent my learning in my assigned task for work. I fear that it is not very simple!

  3. Fran, This is a great video! You have me thinking about what my top ten quotes would be! I love this so much. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Michelle,

      There were so many great things about #NCTE14: friends(AKA framily), learning, and the books. It was so hard to narrow this down so I went with what I’ve been using thus far. Still trying to think about how to convey the vast knowledge gained!

      You are so welcome!

      Dave Stuart’s video is at the top of his post here. (Had to meet his challenge!) http://www.teachingthecore.com/ncte14-professional-conferences-rationale/

  4. Thank you –loved this!! What a great way to sum up!

    1. Thanks, Clare and Tammy!
      I’ve been talking a lot about writing since NCTE and it shows in the quotes that I’ve been using. I’m still working on how to best capture the “full picture” of my learning!

      Thanks for commenting and looking forward to your chat Monday night!

  5. This is terrific, Fran! Thanks for sharing the wisdom of so many educators in one place! I’ve been sharing several ideas that Sara Holbrook and Michael Salinger had about using poetry to teach grammar and content, but I think my #1 quote is from Kristi Mraz. In her session on close reading in the early grades with Chris Lehman and Kate Roberts, she said that we have to meet children where they are because “where they are is exactly where they need to be!” So smart!

    1. Catherine,
      I do have that quote on my list as well as Nancy Frey’s that if it “has a staple, it can’t be close reading.” I just haven’t been able to use them yet. (As well as how evidence of reading, writing and thinking does NOT always have to be written!). It was amazing that all of my sessions were just exceptional!
