Week 2 of #2ndaryELA Twitter chats did not disappoint. 25+ middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers from coast to coast and (and even Puetro Rico and Canada!) spent an hour chatting about the must haves in an ELA classroom, decorating, showing off student work, desk arrangement, and room inspirations.
My favorite idea for decorating with student work was shared by Pittsburgh teacher John C. Danchisko (@mrdanchisko), who said "We create #bucketlists 1st week and I hang those ASAP. must contain 5 selfless acts. Shows good in all. Introduces carpe firm." Love, love, love it!
