Tidbits from the blogosphere

February 7th, 2012

There are a couple of things happening around the web that I wanted to share with all of you.

First, I want to mention that for the first time Stenhouse is going to participate in World Read Aloud Day on March 7. Check back to find out more in this space closer to the date, but I think we have some very exciting authors and events lined up. Find out more about Read Aloud Day on the LitWorld website and think about how you can participate in this great event.

If you have some chatty teenagers in your life, who, like, uhm, don’t quite know how to carry on a conversation, check out this great column by A+ Parenting Advice columnist Leanna Landsmann. She uses some tips from Erik Palmer’s recent book, Well Spoken.

Speaking of Erik: Blogger and teacher Jennifer Fulton read and recommended the book to her department chair, who then purchased a copy for everyone in the department. They used the book as the focus of one of their workshops. Read her review of the book on her blog.

Another review that’s worth a quick read is about Math Exchanges by Kassia Omohundro Wedekind, and appears on the blog Enjoy and Embrace Learning.

Franki Sibberson reviews Peter Johnston’s new book Opening Minds on her blog, A Year of Reading. “With Opening Minds, Johnston adds a new layer to what we already learned from him about the importance of the language we use with children. ┬áThis new layer has given me a great deal to think about and it will definitely make me a better teacher,” Franki writes.
