The chat was amazing. Many preservice teachers from #UNILitEd in Cedar Falls, Iowa, were participating in their first Twitter chat. We hope they will continue to participate in chats,  grow professionally, and find additional sources of on-line learning.

I quoted Donalyn Miller’s research in the chat. (link)  Also Nell Duke’s Edutopia article here. Another new source during the chat was “Sustained Silent Reading:  What the Research Really Says“.

Accountability for Independent Reading.  Students can choose many non-invasive ways to keep track of their reading.   I can’t say enough about how I love the “book stack” showing a month of reading here in Christina’s tweet via learning from Penny Kittle.
