Reading For Rewards Is Not The Way To Go – Brandon Blom

I am a huge fan of Brandon Blom. His energy is addicting. He had a lot of success getting rid of Accelerated Reader when he was a principal. Brandon is this week’s guest on ON Question With Mr. Sharp. I just had to ask him if he had any advice for administrators that want to get rid of Accelerated Reader in their schools.

One Question With Nora Raleigh Baskin

nine ten

If you haven’t read Nora Baskin’s Nine, Ten: A September 11 Story you are really missing out. With the anniversary of September 11th right around the corner, I thought that this would be a good time to ask Nora if she had any advice for educators about how to talk with their students about 9/11. You’ll find her response in the video below.

Nora was a recent guest of The Yarn podcast.

One Question With Ruth Behar

I thought it would be fun to start a video series where I interview teachers, librarians, authors, illustrators, principals, and whoever else I can think of. Each interview will be one, and only one question.

Up first: Ruth Behar

Be sure to stick around until the end of the video to hear Ruth’s question for you.

Thanks for watching!

Be sure to check out Ruth’s book Lucky Broken Girl. It is fantastic!
