AASL Fall Forum

AASL Fall Forum
October 12-13, 2012
We are planning on going to this Forum at the Pittsburgh satellite site.  I am so glad that they are offering this so close by, as it is difficult for us (both of us have young children), to travel far for conferences and workshops.  This topic is perfect for us, as well, since we are trying to reach students through technology, to bring them into our book group, and we are also trying to get them to use technology to review books/ conduct book discussions, etc.  We are also working on a collaborative project with an English teacher in which students are creating book trailers rather than completing the traditional book report... it's so fun seeing how creative all the kids are!  Many of them have gone above and beyond the project requirements and have created outstanding trailers!  So... if anyone ever hears about conferences or workshops taking place in or around western Pennsylvania, please let us know!  Thanks          ~  Nicky
