welcome to Friday!
"It is important to remember we are not the poem. People will react however they want...Don't identify too strongly with your work. Stay fluid behind those black-and-white words. They are not you. They were a great moment going through you. A moment you were awake enough to write down and capture."
Patricia offered The Teaching Channel as a terrific resource especially for videos. Taylor Mali was a favorite.

Brigid explained the PATHS - our goal for the fall is to produce a teaching workshop or a teacher action research project. A workshop could be something you deliver to your faculty or at a conference. You will 'try it out' at ISFI in a 70 minute presentation of that workshop. The teacher action research would be something you wish to test out in your classroom, and you will present to the ISFI class in a 45 minute presentation this fall. What was your research question, collect the data, do professional research, analyze the data and how has the work improved learning or writing? You would want to test it out in your own classroom in early Sept, for a late Sept presentation to the ISFI.
