I’m just going to go ahead and say it. I have a problem with books. That’s right I am addicted to books. Childrens’ books are at the top of my list, but I also geek for for professional books too. So of course Heinemann and Stenhouse send me a hundred catalogs and emails a day. Well, maybe not a hundred, but a lot. They know I am a sucker, a sucker for books.
Anywho, the big H sent me an email promoting their new catalog/journal. It’s clearly advertisement for PD services from their authors. (Which I wish we had money for!) However, there are some really great articles in it as well. It’s kind of brilliant. Check out the link-my favorite article was “I can’t know I can project,” a step-by-step guide to planning a unit of study in Writing Workshop. You can download the articles individually and pass by most of the sales pitch. I swear I only read it for the articles.
