Every week I come across books and articles thatI want to read but rarely find the time to really get into. Here are some new resources that may be helpful to teachers who are interested in continuing on the road of learning.
Carol Steele’s “The 13 Skills” and her book The Inspired Teacher
One of my favourite books this year has to be Jim Burke’s What’s The Big Idea? While Jim is an Englilsh teacher, much of what he talks about is related to many other subjects. The publisher’s website has many resources and two podcasts from Jim that you may want to look at in the Companion Resources section: http://heinemann.com/products/E02157.aspx
Also, following the March 22, 2011 Twitter #edchat discussion on critical thinking and Google, I have a growing list of resources related to Critical Thinking, such as this post on the Literacy Spark blog: Knee Deep In It.
Stay tuned for more information and resources, including more from the #edchat discussion.
