The AASL conference was a fun blur of activity. I saw some dear old friends and met lots of new people, too. Thank you to everyone who attended my signings and concurrent session. Thanks especially to media specialist Debra Heimbrook, who presented along with me.
Debbie shared some books at the end of our session that she recommends for teaching and talking about writing. Since we didn’t get to include those in our online handout, I’m listing them here:
Brown, Marc. Arthur Writes a Story. New York: Little, Brown and Company, 1996.
Allen, Susan and Jane Lindaman. Written Anything Good Lately? Minneapolis, MN: Millbrook Press, 2006.
Rylant, Cynthia. In November. New York: Harcourt, Inc., 2000.
Wong, Janet. You Have to Write. New York: Margaret K. McElderry Books, 2002.
Clements, Andrew. Frindle. New York: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 1996.
