I am not on Instagram, but I use Facebook and Twitter regularly to find resources for my classroom. Communities like #NCTEvillage and the Passionate Readers Book Club on Facebook have been invaluable ...
Book clubs coming up in a few months. Focus is friendships. Currently only have titles about female friendship. Can @ncte or @yalsa members help me brainstorm titles about male friendship? #NCTEvillage
There's a teacher about to make a Common Core lesson plan for #TormentNovella and I'm so excited to finally be able to point educators in that direction so that they feel they have support when it comes to utilizing this little niche book. #nctevillage#writingcommunity
Maybe we need to talk more about children's books in secondary ELA classrooms (and everywhere else). Quoted in https://www. theguardian.com/books/2015/feb /16/childrens-books-are-never-just-for-children … #NCTEvillage#TeachingReading http://pic.twitter.com/gtb9lyaDjx
“A children’s story which is enjoyed only by children is a bad children’s story. The good ones last. A waltz which you can like only when you are waltzing is a bad waltz.” -C. S. Lewis, "On Three Ways of Writing for Children" #TeachingReading#NCTEvillage http://pic.twitter.com/gxeTJmePFY
Reading heals, open, transforms. Have you ever read the first sentence of a poem, article, book, or other writing — and upon finishing that sentence known that this was about to change your life? #NCTEVillage
