Weekend Reading - June 23, 2012

From the blogosphere...

I was about a month behind on my blog reading. It seems that the reading and writing go hand-in-hand for me, but I'm getting back in the groove of things. Here are some of my favorites from this week...

From the bookshelves...

I'm giving a lot of thought to how I'm going to be teaching writing next year with the Common Core, and I'm pulling this book off my bookshelf.

I read it a long time ago, and it's time to revisit it. Hopefully it will give me some new ideas and inspiration to share next week. I'll also be attending a three-day conference about The Written Curriculum in International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. Who knows what creativity that will inspire?! :)

Have a great weekend!

Weekend Reading

Every Saturday, I'll be sharing my favorite reads from the previous week so you can meet some other fabulous bloggers that you may have missed or find some new teaching resources.

From the Blogosphere

Off the Bookshelf

I'm preparing to redeliver a workshop about the Common Core English Language Arts standards to the teachers at my school, so much of my reading is related to that. One of the big topics we'll be talking about is assessment of the new standards, so I'm reading the How to Assess Higher-Order Thinking Skills in Your Classroom book by Susan M. Brookhart. I'm only a couple of chapters into it, but I really like it so far. It's an easy read, but it has lots of practical ideas and suggestions for planning for and assessing each level of Bloom's Taxonomy. I can tell that this will be a book that I revisit several times even after I finish reading it.

What have you been reading or writing this week? Feel free to share links to your own blogs or those of others in the comment section below as I'm always looking to find new blogs to read throughout the week!

Have a great weekend!

New Blog Design

I just have to take a moment to gush about my fabulous new blog design which I purchased from the amazing blog designers over at The Honey Bunch Blog Design. Isn't it awesome??? It absolutely captures my love for integrating classroom technology with a little bit of whimsy, and I'm so excited to call it my own.

If you are ever in the market for someone to makeover your blog, I would absolutely recommend The Honey Bunch. They were so easy to work with, reasonable with their prices, and quick with their turnaround. And have I mentioned that they did a fantastic job?

Back on Monday, when I'll be sharing this year's assortment of VistaPrint indulgences must-haves. :-)
