Are you using Pinterest in your library? How are you using it? How is it helping you to serve your students' needs?

I'm using it for PLN but to be honest I prefer scoop.it. Looking forward to watching how to use it in school for academic research. I hope that I will start to find it more useful.

22 Rules of Story Telling every Teacher should Know about

22 Rules of Story Telling every Teacher should Know about | librariansonthefly | Scoop.it

"Writing is a scary task  for students because  it is partly a single-minded activity that calls for a lot of serious thinking and partly due to the overarching focus that has being placed on teaching writing as product and not  process. Donald Murray, a writing theorist of grand calbire, is unequivocal on this, in his Write to Learn  , Murray emphasizes the importance of teaching writing as a process. For him the problem with teachers of writing is that they are trained as teachers by studying a product and when they are  teaching writing  to their students, they basically focus their attention on what students have produced and not  what they might have done."

He says Fading Footprints, which became a model for King and Expeditionary Learning Schools, doesn't take an entire school, or even a team of twelve, to plan and carry out; one or two teachers can tailor this one to fit their time and resources.
