Your Heinemann Link Round-Up for the Week of October 18–24


Time for a link round-up! Stop whatever it is that you're doing and click these links. What are you doing? Another circle time? Are you interrupting a moment of authentic engagement to comment on how engaged everyone is? Stop that. Let it unfold. Click these links instead.

These links are interviews with educators, posts from our authors' and friends' blogs, and any interesting, newsworthy item from the past seven days. Check back each week for a new round of finds!

David Wees wrote about increasing participation in math class:

In a typical classroom a teacher asks a question, a student responds, the teacher indicates whether the response is incorrect or correct, and this is repeated until the class discussion is over. If this is the only type of interaction a teacher has with their students, this can be problematic.

NPR says it's ok to cry in your car, so go for it:

Regidor isn't alone in that feeling or its timing. One in 10 teachers will leave the classroom by the end of their first year, and teachers are particularly vulnerable in October and November.

Michelle Haseltine celebrated her second blogiversary with a post called "Why I Write":

I write to untangle my insides.
I write to communicate my feelings.
I write to think, to figure things out.
I write to calm myself down.
I write to learn.

Linda Biondi was the first to review the new Reading Nonfiction on MiddleWeb. She must have stayed up all night!

This book is not for the faint at heart. It is not a book that can be digested in one sitting. Each of the 298 pages are noteworthy and important to read and reread. Beers and Probst state this eloquently and honestly: “It’s your book now. It’s you who will transform these inkblots on the page into meaningful practices for your students. You will take these ideas, make them yours, and in doing so will make them better.”
