I’ve gone back to using Flipboard. It nicely organizes the hashtags I’m following on Twitter, and I’m more apt to actually look at the hashtags I’m following if I don’t have to go hunting for them.
As such, it seems like it would be inappropriate to title this post “This Week in my Digg Feed” if the content isn’t solely coming from my Digg Reader.
And now, my Week-End Update.
What I’m Adding to my TBR List
- Wise Young Fool by Sean Beaudoin (Thanks to The Hub)
- The Infects by Sean Beaudoin (Thanks to my Amazon search for Wise Young Fool)
- Alif the Unseen by G. Willow Wilson (Thanks to Allyn)
Neat Teaching Stuff
- Using informational texts. From an NCTE ’13 session called “Ripped from the Headlines”
- How to Survive as an Introverted Teacher from Education Rethink. So it’s settled. I’m going to take one day a week and kick all the kids out of my room at lunch. Yes, I like playing Magic the Gathering with them, but if things are super hectic all the time, all I want to do when I go home is sleep. And, well, ain’t nobody got time for that.
- 5 Powerful Questions Teachers Can Ask Students from Edutopia. And here’s a picture.
- Stretch-a-Sentence from TeachWithClass. My middle school students could benefit from this.
Stuff I Want to Learn
- I think info graphics are neat, but I’ve never set aside the time to learn how to make them. Here’s 5 Infographics to teach me how to make infographics. From The Reading Zone‘s Diigo post.
What I’ve Been Reading & Other YA Book News
- I recently finished Freakboy by Kristin Elizabeth Clark and I absolutely loved it. I saw a post on I’m Here. I’m Queer. What the Hell Do I Read? about it, and added the video to my own post.
- I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga was Challenged in Kentucky. From Bookshelves of Doom. Can I just say that I love this book? I’m a huge fan of Criminal Minds, and as such, this one pushes all the right book buttons (to steal a line from the BookRiot folks)
