SCALI 2015

What a day- I woke up sick, shattered my cell phone, got the time wrong due to a time change story that's legendary, went to the SCALI conference without my computer adaptor, didn't have a mic in my session and lost my voice, and ran out of handouts. Oh my!

However, I did have the best time in my break out session. What a wonderful group of counselor. We talked about collaborating with your school librarian/media specialist and connecting lessons to Common Core and ASCA Standards.

Here are the handouts and resources I shared:

Also, my friend Svarda insisted (and I am so glad she did) the TN Standards App. Download it and the ASCA model app for EASY access to standards that make lesson planning a breeze.
