Some Handwritten Notes from the Sat. Reunion

Regular readers of this blog have probably noticed my absence this last week.  I was feeling, for lack of a better word, lousy.  I came back from last weekend’s TCRWP Saturday Reunion raring to go, but got stopped by forces beyond my control.  I don’t like feeling under the weather (who does?), especially when there are so many good ideas rolling around in my head.  Alas, I was slowed down.  I missed 3.5 days of school.  I slowly feel myself coming back, but it’s taking time.
Last Saturday, before I felt lousy, I promised to type-up my notes and share them in this venue.  I got to part of Katherine Bomer’s Session, but couldn’t go any further.  So, now that I’m slowly crawling back to the land of the living, I decided to scan my notes from Beth Moore’s fantastic session “Literacy and Social Studies Go Hand-in-Hand: Teach Young Children to Think, Talk, and Write Like Historians” since I’m not up to typing them up quite yet.  I took The Reading Zone‘s lead and tried out a new technology, Issuu, for sharing documents.  Please let me know what you think after you read through my notes by clicking here.

  1. Like those above, I like the idea. I think all you K-12s have the jump on us profs in technology sometimes–I’ve learned a lot by slicing this month and now here’s one more new thing to add.

    I had a hard time reading it because of the orientation, but just the same, I appreciate the effort. (And I’m glad that you are “crawling back” to feeling like a human again–yay!)



  2. Great notes! Thanks for sharing.

    Issuu seems to be a great site. And apparently you can download the files if you sign up for an account (it gave me the option to do so). I still like Scribd better but I like that I can choose to upload handwritten notes to Issuu.
