  1. Thanks for sharing the blog posts along with Kelly Gallagher’s top ten tweets. Every one is meaningful and powerful. I am definitely sending it off to share with teachers. I hope you enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    1. You are welcome, Laurie!
      I’ve been slow to capture the sessions so I decided to go with this one for now! Happy Thanksgiving to you as well!

  2. Awesome. You are the very best, my friend.

    1. Happy Thanksgiving, my friend! Enjoy the break!

  3. Thanks for including me, Fran; not just in this post, but also in thinking about me while you were at NCTE and knowing how much I hate not being there. You have made me feel included and I appreciate that so much.

    Happy Thanksgiving, Fran!

    1. Allison,
      You are so welcome!
      Happy Thanksgiving to you as well!

  4. Thank you for the great links Fran! Even though I was there it in many ways I feel I wasn’t! I wasn’t a diligent tweeter so I missed what was going on outside my sessions! I love how you kept up the feed for Allison and Tara!

    1. Julieanne, you are welcome! There were so many sessions and so much learning – simultaneity! I had to include Allison and Tara – both have kept me connected to Notice and Note and now Nonfiction Reading!

  5. […] (Vicki Vinton & Katie Wood Ray) here, (Kelly Gallagher’s Top 10) here, (Sessions – Colleen Cruz, Jennifer Serravallo, Clare & Tammy, #G2Great) here and […]
