PODCAST

The Summer Reading Experience


Research shows that when children and their families have the resources they need to read throughout the summer, fewer students experience a loss of skills while school is out.

On this episode, we're talking with two experts about ways they work to keep books in the hands of their students all summer long, and the incredible results they've seen as a result of their focus on summer reading. 

ARTICLE

Teacher To-Do List:
Summer Edition

By John DePasquale for the Top Teaching Blog



With the school year finished and end-of-year reflections hopefully complete, it is finally time for teachers to shift their thoughts, for the most part, to summer. Before I dive into my summertime plans, I first take time to set specific goals and create a to-do list (modified for summer) to keep my plans on track. Once I switch over to teacher-in-summer mode, I keep my to-do list very simple and specific to guarantee I’ll get things done.
