For ‘Connected Educator Month,’ Tips From 33 Educators We Admire is a very helpful post over at The New York Times Learning Network.

Here was my contribution:

Larry Ferlazzo | Luther Burbank High School

Ideas for English Language Learners series

1. I learned about an incredible lesson of having students create “What if?” projects that examine what would have happened in history if one event had been changed. Thanks to Carla Federman and Diana Laufenberg for their great ideas and willingness to share examples.

2. John Norton at Middleweb shares great resources for all grade levels and is one of the nicest and most helpful people in the education part of the social media world.

Katherine Schulten at The Times is inviting people to contribute their own answers to these two questions, and I’d encourage you to head over there and  do so…

  1. What is one important thing you’ve learned from someone in yourPersonal Learning Network (P.L.N.), however you define that network?
  2. What one person, group or organization would you recommend every educator add to his or her P.L.N.?
