This article goes hand-in-hand with the one I shared yesterday about 12 ways to nurture reading. This one goes a little deeper with a discussion of how a Title 1 school was able to build a culture of reading through selecting series to read. This is a great idea to build passionate readers because building competent readers simply isn't enough, is it? Enjoy!

The Periodic Table of the Figures of Speech: 40 Ways to Improve Your Writing | Little bit o this n a little bit o that | Scoop.it
At the root of all good writing lies an understanding of how sentences are built. In kindergarten, we learn the fundamentals of grammar and the basic concepts of how sentences are constructed. For most of our elementary and secondary training in writing, we are taught simply to improve those grammatical and mechanical skills. A good writer, however, understands the complexities and rhetorical effects of how modifying sentence structure (known as sentence "schemes") improves the flow, interest, a

I've been a fan of QR (quick response) codes since I first heard about them but - as with many tech tools - you begin to think you've exhausted their possibilities. Think again! This will give you some new ideas for putting those QR codes to work that will generate some excitement among your students! Share this with your tech-savvy teachers, too!
