Ah, Summer PD!
Every summer I set myself “homework” and read and read and read (both professional books and loads of books that I want to use in my classroom), For the last few years I have participated in #cyberpd, which I love, as the organizers always seem to pick amazing books and I learn so much from the discussion. This summer I planned my time around a few PD opportunities (nErDCampMI I wrote about last week). Today was… Scholastic’s Book Summit in Boston (actually Norwood, but advertised as being in Boston).
I need time to process my amazing day, but it is Tuesday, so here is a word cloud:
A special thank you to John Schumacher (@MrSchuReads) and Donalyn Miller (@donalynbooks) who were fabulous presenters and fun to be with (in addition to being so inspirational!). Also I loved meeting up with amazing educators I follow on Twitter. If there is a Scholastic Book Summit coming anywhere near you I highly recommend you attend.
