We kick off with Jon Corippo and Cate Tolnai (OMG that’s me!!), two CUE Craft instigators who are bent on bringing lesson craftsmanship back into the hands of teachers. Tweet at Jon (@jcorippo) and Cate (@CateTolnai) with your take on their mission! (If Jon and Cate recalls old “Jon and Kate Plus Eight” TV episodes like it did Matt, you’re not alone! And you’ll find out why that comparison isn’t that far off base …)

After that opening, you’re in for a treat. Jennifer Gonzalez of the wildly popular Cult of Pedagogy blog and podcast shares several VERY practical ideas she’s written/talked. They’re topics I hand-picked from her work. (Her blog and podcast are two of my absolute FAVORITE resources for educators.) They include …

  • Developing curation to learn
  • The “single point rubric”
  • Frickin’ packets (yes, those are worksheet packets …)

Her insight and ideas are not to be missed! Tweet at Jennifer (@cultofpedagogy) to connect with her!
