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.

Slice of Life 19: Hunger Games

For a bit of entertainment this weekend we went to the show and it was especially great because we were together watching this movie series again!

Stunning visual effects!   Are the characters still believable?  And consistent across the first two movies?  How well did the movie capture the contents of the book?

We both agreed that the book was better than the movie.  As bookaholics we may be a bit biased.  Isn’t the book always better than the movie?

A trilogy to debate. Evan says Hunger Games is the best book of the series.  I say Mockingjay is better. Two different votes – neither wins . . .

Let’s see what the readers say!  Which one is truly the best book?  Which movie is your favorite so far?

Please take this quick 3 item survey (no names will be captured)!

Which is usually better:  the book or the movie?  Why do you think so?
