I’ll be totally honest: I speak at public events all the time–I should be used to this–but nothing still gives me more butterflies than the hour before a webinar goes live. I always find myself sorting through things that need not be sorted and texting people that need not be texted.
I will also tell you: the second we start and I get to connect with fellow educators, it feels just like home.
In this post, I’d like to:
- share with you the archived webinar from my conversation with Tony Flach of The Leadership and Learning Center this past week.
- Announce I’ll be speaking at their conference in New Oreleans in November.
- And share information on my October webinar series with Heinemann PD.
I’m looking forward to sharing all of this with you (butterflies and all)!
Archived Webinar: A Conversation About the Common Core State Standards
Thanks to all of you who attended my live webinar with The Leadership and Learning Center. It was a blast, Tony Flach was a terrific host and Cathy and crew from the center made it very enjoyable. In case you missed it, it is now archived! Here’s the link or click the image below.
I’m also looking forward to providing the first day keynote and joining panel discussions at The Leadership and Learning Center’s conference on the Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Assessments in New Orleans, November 5-6. More here.
Upcoming Webinar Series: Energize Your Classroom: Informational Reading, Writing And Research Are Way More Interesting Than You Think!
Beginning October 2, I am leading a three-session, live, interactive webinar series on best practices for informational reading, writing and research.
I led a similar series this past winter, and it was so much fun that Heinemann has decided to offer two separate time slots, giving you more opportunities to attend. Both series will run for the first three Wednesdays in October, select the time slot that works best for you (or perhaps even your team for day-time learning):
Morning 11:00AM-12:15PM ET (8:00AM-9:15 PT)
Afternoon 5:00-6:15PM ET (2:00-3:15 PT)
For information on group rates call Heinemann PD at 800-541-2086, ext. 1151.
The webinar involves my live video stream, an on-going real time chat box for all attendees to communicate, and options for credits. All sessions are archived for participants.
As always, thanks for all you do for your students and fellow educators. I’m honored to be a small part of your big journey.
