#NCTE18: Sunday


Sad Sunday Smashing Slashing Schemes

Sad, it’s the last day of #NCTE18

Sunday, wow, really?  It’s easy to lose track of the days!

Smashing! Great line up of sessions. Still difficult to choose!

Slashing!  That was the session back in the dungeon, in the back, back, back, under the auditorium.

Schemes!  Already plotting for #NCTE19

The final general session with twins, Peter and Paul Reynolds.  Gifted artists. Gifted story tellers.  Gifted.  And what a gift to us!  Peter read two books to us.  The Word Collector and Say Something. Treasured moments!  So much to learn from all of those around us and we do need to share our voices.

What’s New in the 4th Edition of the Handbook of Research on Teaching the English Language Arts

This was my second session (ILA the first) about this book.  Critical ideas that teachers and administrators need to be aware of and discussing.

I’m researching more information about #affectiveassessmentsmatter and Comprehensive Reader Portraits through Career Dream Drawing Assessment.  Talk about relevance for students!  (UK parallel research link)

And a quick vocab note:  Bill Nagy, quoted by Susan Watts-Taffe University of Cincinnati, “There is no magic list of vocabulary words.  Cohesion around kinds of cohesion is helpful. Thematic work with vocab offers significant practice.  It’s about what you do with the list.”

What’s next on your creating list? 

Where will you go? 

What will you learn? 

And with whom?

Thank you, NCTE!
