You can be looking for lots of new helpful resources I’ve been developing:
I’m beginning my fifth year as an Education Week teacher advice columnist, and will be kicking-off the new school year with the first “question-of-the-week” in a few days. I’ve been posting thematic compilations of previous posts during the summer.
I’ll also start taping new weekly BAM! Radio shows this week, and you can see lists and links to all my previous ones at All My BAM Radio Shows – Linked With Descriptions.
New weekly student interactives, along with writing prompts, for English Language Learners will start appearing at The New York Times Learning Network in about eight days. This will be my fourth year there, and you can see my previous posts at All My NY Times Posts For English Language Learners – Linked With Descriptions.
Thankfully, Katie Hull Sypnieski and I have just completed our 110,000 word opus on Navigating The Common Core With English Language Learners. It will be published by Jossey-Bass in March, 2016. If you’re interested, you can access a ton of free resources from my previous seven books here.
The new school year began here last Thursday, so I’ll be writing lots of new posts over the next ten months about my ELL and IB TOK classes.
In addition, it looks like I’ll be teaching a college class of students in a teacher credential program, so I suspect that will be a source of new reflections, too.
All in all, it’s going to be a busy year!
