Win a Classroom Set of Novels

http://createdforlearning.blogspot.com/2015/12/blackhistorygiveaway.html

        Recently, a teacher commented that they would love to use one of our Complete Novel Units, but they didn't have a classroom set of books to use with the students.         This got me, Lisa, thinking about how I would love to be like Oprah or Ellen and give away classroom sets of books.  "A classroom set for you! A classroom set for you!"

        We checked our budget and decided it would be really fun to give away one classroom set. Thanks for understanding that we lack the sponsors of the aforementioned talk-show hosts.

Episode 2: Moving Students from What to Think ... to How to Think

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q11w-2TD19I
          Today, we're talking about one of our core beliefs about thinking: that a teacher's role today has moved from teaching students to learn "what" to think ... to teaching them "how" to think. Hop on over and share your thoughts in the conversation.

*cue fancy announcement trumpets*

Our first vlog post ... in which we discuss the psychology of priming, how that affects student testing results, and why that might be giving some of The Voice coaches a winning advantage. Can't wait to hear your experiences in your classroom on this topic!


In the vlog, we mention a book called Blink by Malcolm Gladwell, one of my favorite non-fiction writers. Check out here to learn more about this phenomenon
or watch here to learn more by hearing Gladwell talk.
