Links I Loved Last Week: A Round-Up of Online Reading 1/17/16

Sunday Salon

The ALA Youth Media Awards were announced this week! I even woke up early for it–and I jealously guard my sleep. Check out the Reaction Tweets of the winners, and then enjoy the comments and opinions of the “real Caldecott committee” which chimed in on Calling Caldecott, a Mock Caldecott blog.

I am such a sucker for a bookstore cat.

I bookmarked A Neuroscientist Explains the Allure of Adult Coloring Books to share with my Creative Mind class.

Teachers can find specific tips for working with the adolescent brain from this Guardian article.

Check out the stack of books Jackie at Three Teachers Talk gave her new student teacher in 10 Pedagogical Must-Reads for Workshop Teachers.

A little more goodness from Three Teachers Talk: I love the new low-key notebook approach Shana has decided to take. The longer I teach, the more I adhere to less is more!

I’m just as obsessed with Adele’s Carpool Karaoke as everyone else is.

There’s probably no chance that I’ll stick to my no book buying goal, but Book Riot does have 10 tips for me, just in case.

Kelly Jensen’s YA News updates at Book Riot are so helpful.

So glad to see Miss Darnell blogging again! I loved this post reflecting on her first semester as a middle-school Language Arts teacher.

As the mother of a child whose “brain distracts [him] every step of the way,” Pernille Ripp’s Broken Child gave me all the feels.

My must-read piece from this week is a  2013 essay by Matt de la Pena that just came to my attention this week in this gorgeous post by Tara Smith about the students we can’t stop thinking about.

  1. I read that article by Matt de la Pena when it came out and the story he shared of his dad reading and then deciding to go back to school to get his degree stuck with me. It reminded me of some of my family members’ experiences.
