I am so excited to be here in Louisiana attending my first ever WBT conference!
It is thrilling to see my heroes and learn new ideas.
(Can I hear an, "Ahhhh!")
Also, a big shout out to Nancy Stoltenberg for being named the WBT Teacher of the Year! You rock!
If you haven't checked out Lindsey Roush's newest YouTube video on oral writing, QUICK...go watch. It has the most amazing game called Help Me. Students aren't embarrassed or feel dumb if they can't come up with an answer, they simply hold out their hands to the class and say, "Help me!" The class gives answers and ideas until the student knows what to say and calls out, "Class!"
Coach B. taught us all about it in our breakout session today.
Stay tuned for more great words of wisdom that will take you straight to teacher heaven! Oh, yeah.
