General notes of interest (from Courtney):
  • Always teach literacy.
  • Always use cross-curricular standards-based objectives.
  • Use PVC pipe to create telephone headsets so students can hear themselves reading.
  • As an alternative to whole class brainstorming, have students engage in small group brainstorming.
