Summer Ideas to Recharge Yourself
A super easy to stay connected and grab new ideas for the school year is to participate in Twitter chats. These happen all throughout the year at various hours on various days. What's even cooler about this is that Twitter is full of educators from all over the world ready to connect with and share ideas. Twitter may seem like an overwhelming social media platform, but it truly is gold mine for teachers to collaborate digitally directly from your couch. If you're looking for a chat to get started, check out the Davenport Community School District Chat, #dcsdpln, on Monday evenings at 9:00 PM CST. If you're looking for others to participate it, check out the list of Educational Twitter Chats.
Dive Into a Good Book
Another relaxing activity to prepare for the upcoming school year is to indulge in a book. Whether that means you're reading educational books or for pleasure, reading may spark some interest for your lessons. If you're wanting some terrific education-oriented books, Matt Miller over at Ditch That Textbook created a list of 10 Great Education Books for summer reading. This summer, I am looking forward to diving into Be The Wild Card, Shift This, and Shattering the Perfect Teacher Myth.
