Loveeeee! I felt just like this yesterday. This is amazingness. I love that ideas can be reimagined. I haven't seen a 6 word memoir life time line. What a glimpse into your life and a way to honor all you have accomplished.  I love it so much.
This could be a great formative assessment of a person's life in Social Studies. I am working with a SS teacher new to elementary and we are always looking for writing ideas that aren't recitation. Thank you!

I might just check out your reads. Nothing like a good recommendation of a genre or author that isn't your normal. Your life is so full, I am glad you had a February vacation. Not quite sure what that is down here in Texas, but it sounds wonderful. Your words-- "miss the lazy days of running errands, spending time with my husband and son, and reading, writing and resting" are in my opinion, what life is all about!

Can we change the world through conversations? Wed 1.14 @ 9pmET/6pmPT http://edtechtalk.com/ttt join @joshfeigelson from http://askbigquestions.org #NWP

+Josh Feigelson will be our guest on Teachers Teaching Teachers. 

In 2005, when he was Campus Rabbi at Northwestern University Hillel, Josh founded Ask Big Questions along with students Allie Gross and Lexie Komisar. In 2011, Ask Big Questions became a national initiative of Hillel, and Josh became its Educational Director. Since that time, he has guided the development of our educational theory, approach to training, and design of educational resources.

Join us at 9PM ET/6PM PT at http://edtechtalk.com/ttt. Learn more about Ask Big Questions http://askbigquestions.org.

Recently, we added a new feature to Youth Voices http://youthvoices.net/askbigquestions, which can be accessed from the "Questions" tab at Youth Voices. We are planning to follow their monthly questions with rich and relevant blended (both asynchronous and face-to-face) experiences for the youths in our middle and high school classrooms.  

Specifically, we are using NowComment to engage students around texts, then we will invite them to scheduled Hangouts to talk about big questions, following the guidelines that Ask Big Questions provides. We started doing some of this last year http://youthvoices.net/live and we are looking these resources to help us make these online conversations even more meaningful.

This is what we will be talking this Wednesday on Teachers Teaching Teachers: how to introduce Ask Big Questions into our secondary school classrooms, how to use Youth Voices and NowComment, and how to arrange Hangouts to have conversations across schools.

Please plan to join us at http://edtechtalk.com/ttt at 9PM ET/6PM PT on Wednesday, January 14.
