Chat Archives Come to Life on Teachers.Net
by Kathleen Carpenter
From Howard Gardner to Hap Palmer, the hundreds of transcripts preserved in the Archives (http://teachers.net/archive) make it possible for you to revisit past live sessions offered by Teachers.Net. Information stored in more than twenty categories serves as a ready reference tool and interesting reading on topics as diverse as Job Hunting Tips, Computers and Technology, and Multiple Intelligences.
Monthly meeting transcripts are archived as well. Represented are early childhood through upper elementary group meetings, substitute, student, beginning, and special education teachers' sessions. Reading Recovery teachers meet twice monthly and their transcripts provide extensive peer support.
Curricular areas are covered in collections that include 4-Blocks Literacy Model and Six Traits of Writing. Under Focus Sessions you will find dozens of topics such as ADD, ADHD and Ritalin; Internet Stalking; Grant Writing; Teaching Reading Comprehension; Non-Competitive Games; Bullies In School; Literature Circles; Rubrics; Internet Standards, and many more!
The Author/Illustrator section presents interviews and interaction with some of the biggest names from the field of education and children's literature. Dr. Howard Gardner, Esme Codell, Dr. Beverly Tatum, Joan Holub, and Caldecott Award winner Emily Arnold McCully are just a few whose conversations are available to you in the Teachers.Net Archives.
Questions about the Archives can be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Mary edits and posts the transcripts for the benefit of all. Become pleasantly surprised, browse the Live Chat Archives today!
