It takes a while to get back into the routine that is summer. So many people believe teachers sit around at the beach and read for three months. And while we do take time out, like most people, for some R and R, we are thinking about teaching.
As I set a direction for thinking about teaching this summer, I am relieved to know other professionals are also using this time to reflect, wonder, and continue moving forward outside of the classroom.
This summer I hope to start reading Pathways to the Common Core by Lucy Calkins. From what I have heard from several other educators I respect, this will be a helpful text to provide clarity as I interpret the future outcomes in education.
