Staying Connected During the Summer

...a time for educators to 
relax, reflect, recharge, and refresh....

...as well as a time to reconnect, rethink, reconfigure, and redesign.

I'm going through my copy of
Comprehension &Collaboration: Inquiry Circles in Action by Harvey and Daniels for the third time.

And most of us don't stop there. 

We take to heart the idea that summer is also a time for 

...learning, growing, exploring, pursuing, planning, collaborating, and innovating...

via several mediums, including:

Twitter, Google + and other social networks,


Google Apps,




blogs / blogging,

and pursuing opportunities for 

incredible collaboration and training, 

such as the Google Teacher Academy in Chicago.

Check out my application video - 
it would be an honor to be chosen to participate!


How do you stay connected during the summer?

  1. I stay connected through many of the learning opportunities you mentioned including Twitter Chats (#ELLChat & #titletalk are two faves), reading professional books (focused on academic vocabulary & reading instruction this summmer), and attending classes and conferences. My school is also piloting a summer reading focus this year where we meet with students at the public library once a month.
