“Collection Of Tweets From Second Week’s Chat On Classroom Management”

I’ve just posted a Collection Of Tweets From Second Week’s Chat On Classroom Management over at Education Week Teacher.

Today marks the end of a two-week Twitter “chat” (using the hashtag #classmgmtQA ) on my new Education Week-published book, Classroom Management Q&As: Expert Strategies for Teaching.

It’s been a very active two weeks, with my tweeting out quotations from the book, along with questions, and receiving many reactions.

You can see the first week’s collection here.

Here’s a sample from it:

Twitter Chat on My New Book Starts Today #classmgmtQA

Regular readers of this blog know that Education Week recently published a eBook collection of posts from here on classroom management and student motivation.  It’s titled Classroom Management Q&As: Expert Strategies for Teaching.

It also includes new material, and you can read an excerpt from the book that appeared in The Washington Post.  Also, Middleweb has recently published a review.

I’ve done versions of Twitter “chats” for some of my previous books on teaching English Language Learners and on student motivation, and am kicking-off a two week chat today for this new book.

The hashtag will be #classmgmtQA.

For two weeks, I’ll tweet two-or-three quotes from the book each day, encourage reactions and respond to feedback.  I’ll also post a collection of all the tweets at my Ed Week Teacher blog at the end of each week (so you’ll be able to read them even if you’re not a Twitter user).  As you can see by looking at the links to my previous book chats, they’ve been lively and a learning experience for everybody — including me!

It begins today, so look for the hashtag #classmgmtQA and/or follow me at @Larryferlazzo.

“Recover From Bad Days by Seeing ‘Disasters as Opportunities’”

Recover From Bad Days by Seeing ‘Disasters as Opportunities’ is my new Education Week Teacher post, and it’s a good one.

It includes a response from Roxanna Elden, who is one of the most engaging and entertaining education writers around. Her contribution is followed by guest responses from two other exceptional educators and authors — Allen Mendler and Julia Thompson. I also share some advice.

I’ve often shared Roxanna’s work in this blog and in my Ed Week Teacher column. A second edition of her invaluable book, See Me After Class, is being published this week, and I think it’s a “must-have” for newbies and veterans alike.
