Links I Loved Last Week: A Round-Up of Online Reading

The Teaching Life

I know it’s the middle of January, but it’s never too late to make resolutions. Etale shares 10 Alternatives to Traditional New Year’s Resolutions. I can imagine many classroom applications for these ideas.

The longer I teach, the more simple my classroom becomes. That’s because I know my core values and I try to focus on them. Jennifer at Empathetic Teacher calls this teaching like an artist.

Three Teachers Talk has been killing it lately. Be sure to check out Amy’s 5 suggestions on how to meet your writing goals and Shana’s reflections on losing sight of reading for herself in Reading Resolutions.

Pernille Ripp suggests 7 Things to Try Before You Give Up on a Student.

I haven’t figured out a way to use Vine in my classes yet, but this post by George Couros inspires me to think of ways I might use it.

Cathy reflects on the importance of independent reading time in reader’s workshop.


The Reading Life

Why I Reread at The Hub inspires me to give myself permission to reread more often.

Stephanie Kuehn has a terrific interview with Isabel Quintero, whose novel Gabi: A Girl in Pieces is a Morris Award finalist (and one of my favorite YA novels of 2014).

Betsy Bird profiles some publishers who are publishing innovative, risky content in children’s literature.

I love all of Amy’s advice for finding more time to read (even when you have kids!).

Looking for an interesting YA memoir to read? Stacked has a great list of recommendations.


The Writing Life

Terri Windling tackles the problem of perfectionism with good advice, great quotes, and fine pictures of a handsome dog.
