After relaxing in my sweats cozied up to Netflix the past two days from snow, I had the honor and pleasure to listen to Donalyn Miller speak at the Write to Learn Conference here in Missouri! You may be familiar with her from her book The Book Whisperer, which I know have a signed copy! (insert dorky smile here).
Buy it on Amazon here.
Throughout her presentation (all day!), I kept thinking that everything she was talking about was realistic and do-able. I have sat in workshops before and felt like there was no way I could manage it all or do that in my classroom. Today was different. She spoke to us like educators and shared practical strategies and ideas.
I'll share more of the ideas and thoughts pouring out my head soon.
