Introduction: Sharing the Gold

Logging onto the CTQ Collaboratory makes me feel like I’ve struck gold. For the price of a few clicks, I have access to resources from brilliant teachers who have dared to develop and share their voices from the classroom.

Through the Collaboratory bloggers and teacher leaders, I have access to commentary, slides, links, documents, book reviews, and stories–all from teachers who have paved the way for the current and future generations of teacher leaders. Now I want to share these resources with
you in a new way.

What this blog will offer

This blog’s goal: Identify the topics and issues that matter to educators—and provide relevant resources.

I’ll do this by mining a vast bank of resources and blogs to bring together topical “packages” 2-3 times a month.

Each post will offer you a new topic and a list of linked teacher-created resources.

How you can use posts from this blog

•    Find out what others are saying about a timely (or timeless) topic.

•    Spark a discussion in your PLC.

•    Share them with colleagues, principals, coaches, and teacher education professors who could spread teachers’ ideas and expertise.

•    Grab that fresh burst of inspiration you need to push through a particularly thorny problem.

I invite you to explore, learn, and grow with me! Subscribe now to make “Resource Roundup” a part of your own professional reading routine.
