Heinemann Resolutions, Part 9: Connie Dierking, Sherra Jones, David Freeman, and Yvonne Freeman

We asked the Heinemann authors who published a book in 2014 to provide a resolution for 2015. We hope these resolutions--or edulutions--spark a note of self-reflection while lifting you to continue your good, vital work into the new year. Over the next two weeks as we share our education resolutions, we’d love to read your edulutions. Share them with us or follow along on Twitter with the hashtag #Heinemann15. Cheers for a happy new year!

“A New Year's Resolution is a promise for the new year. In this new year we promise to daily celebrate the spoken word. We promise to hold students accountable for living lives filled with stories to share. And we promise to remind students that within each of them resides a personal library overflowing with oral mentor texts forever ready for check out.

In the New Year, may we remember to reflect on what's working in healthy ways for children in every state, in every community, in every school, in every classroom.

May we always advocate not only for children but for the teacher standing before them.

Let us resolve to grow in ways steeped in the belief that every child is worthy of an impeccable education.”

-Connie Dierking and Sherra Jones, authors of Oral Mentor Texts

“We resolve to complete a book on ESL methods and to give talks and work with teachers to establish effective teaching with emergent bilingual students. We also resolve to continue to read and research effective practices for K-12 teachers.”

-David and Yvonne Freeman, authors of Essential Linguistics, Second Edition
