  • Thing 50: New AASL Standards
    I agree with the introduction to the AASL Standards sections that each time new standards are released, it is overwhelming!

  • Thing 35: Supporting English Language Learners
    The idea of providing better support to English language learners is something that has grown near and dear to me. We have an ESL teacher's office located in our library back room, and I have come to know her services and students very well. I think the work she does ... read more

  • Thing 32: Annual Reports – Make Them Matter & Report More Often!
    I realize that I am doing an extra post, and think I may even do Thing 50 on the new AASL standards.  I really can't stop and I can't thank Polly enough for energizing me!  There are so many of these topics that I find could have such an impact ... read more

  • Cool Tools Thing 37: Green Screen Fun
    I’m fortunate that our BOCES SLS has a green screen that we can borrow along with iPad with DoInk installed.  It’s up – but what to do with it?  I’ve struck on an idea–but how to get it to actually work?  Hoping #37 will help me! One of the plans ... read more

  • Cool Tools #4: Thing 35 Supporting English Language Learners
    This topic could not come at a more appropriate time. In the past our ELL population of 80 or so students has attended another school that has more resources. In the next two years, students will be transitioning back to our school, including a large Arabic population. The two articles ... read more

  • Thing 21: News Literacy
    Where to begin?!  This was another timely topic and it worked well with the session I did on Search Tools, but, warning,  it was vast.  I spent hours delving into the amazing wealth of information provided.  I selected this topic because, as I mentioned in an earlier post, I am ... read more
