I was considering the Literacy at School initiative and would like to offer Nelson’s support. I know some of the classrooms are using and really enjoying our new literacy resource Nelson Literacy. You may have seen how this program support balanced literacy, differentiated instruction, multimedia extension…etc.

Nelson Literacy is now published in grades 2-9 with K & 1 coming out in November and May. I’ve provided complementary resources to a few demonstration classrooms in the past; however I don’t have a current listing. Are there new classrooms this year?

Please let me know if you’re interested in using Nelson Literacy or other Nelson resources in the demonstration classrooms. I’d be happy to continue donating towards this initiative.

Notes for Collaboration:
Hi, I have set this up as a bit
of a random idea generator. It is
possible to add more ideas and reshape

Email group discussion notes to gary.forsyth@yrdsb.edu.on.ca
Reexamine social networking
policies. Many schools initially
banned or restricted Internet use,
only to ease up when the educational
value of the Internet
became clear. The same is likely
to be the case with social networking.
Safety policies remain
important, as does teaching students
about online safety and
responsible online expression —
but students may learn these lessons
better while they’re actually
using social networking tools
Twitter Tips
• Begin by following people you already know and trust.
• Explore related resources like Twitter4Teachers (http://twitter4teachers.pbworks.com/), a wiki that helps teachers find other teachers on Twitter in their subject area.
• At least at first, limit your network to a manageable number of followers; be mindful of information-gathering objectives.
• Be generous in “retweeting”—i.e., share messages by others with your followers.
• When appropriate, use hashtags (#literacy) to share your tweets with a larger interest group; but do not overuse hashtags.
•Tweet wisely: Remember that whatever you post can be shared across the Internet; avoid talking about individual students or colleagues.
