You have probably forgotten me by now. I have been off learning new tech skills in Austin, then on Spring Break in Tennessee, then out, unexpectedly, on bereavement leave in Louisiana. Needless to say, I am exhausted. I am slowly dragging my feet back to reality and back to work. I know there are many of you who are in my shoes right now: worn out.
BUT! There is good news because it is STAAR testing week. I know what you are thinking: STAAR testing week is NOT good news. Well, I am here to tell you that it is! Use this week to recoup. There is nothing more you can do now. The test is here. So, take time this week to be filled again. What I am offering is something called a Professional Learning Network or PLN. That sounds super fancy for what it actually is: connections to people who inspire you or educate you. A PLN can be simply reading my blog when I send things out, or it could be live Twitter convos using 140 characters or less with integrated hashtags.
So, today I want to recommend one of my people I use for my PLN: Jennifer Gonzalez. She writes a regular blog which provides support, ideas, new tech, and awareness to what is happening in education today. Today’s post is about dealing with slow working students in the classroom. She has gathered resources and strategies to share with us, and now I am sharing with you. Feel free to browse her blog for other interesting topics as well as check out her book: Hacking Education: 10 Quick Fixes for Every School.
Think about what she offers then add your own thoughts below if you’d like to contribute. See you all soon!
